Dreaded stalled front

Winter dry season means dry air and lots of sun, right?

Not in the case of the dreaded stalled front.

South Florida misses out on many fronts ...
Not that North Florida cares.
For as much as a cold front that passes clear through the southern bottom of the peninsula is praised among the locals as "a gift from the heavens" and "those meteorologists on the continent can do no wrong," stationary fronts have a reputation of raining, albeit a slow off and on drizzle, on south Florida's sunny-all-winter parade.

Skies turn leaden and humid air from the tropics takes hold.

Note to the Polar Weather Service:

Put a little more juice on the next cold front, please!

I agree, send more cool air!

I think we may be getting more than a drizzle tomorrow. Just in time for a lunch and shopping excursion I had planned! I visited Leon Sinks on Sunday and was shocked at how low the wet sink water levels are. So you know I don't mind some rain on my parade.
