?️ Soggy Sunday In Florida; Watching The Tropics

Sunday features periods of showers and storms throughout South Florida as a tropical wave passes through.  Look for some sun (but more clouds) in the east coast metro area, while points to the west will see cloudy skies and plenty of rain.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents remains at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 90s near the Atlantic coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

Monday will bring good sun and a few clouds alternating with passing showers and storms.  Monday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Tuesday will see some sun and periods of showers and storms along the Gulf coast, while the east coast metro area will be mostly cloudy with plenty of showers and storms.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Wednesday will feature some sun, more clouds, and periods of showers and storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be mostly in the low 90s.

Thursday’s forecast includes clouds, showers, and a few storms in spots.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, we’re watching a wave near Hispaniola.  This wave is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, and the National Hurricane Center gives it a low chance of developing into a depression during the next 5 days.  We’ll keep an eye on it for potential effects on the northwestern Gulf coast late in the workweek.
