2019’s First “Disturbance” To Bring Us Rain, Lots Of It

South Florida will be breezy and rainy on Thursday as a disturbance affects our weather.  While the disturbance is not expected to develop while it hovers over or near Florida for the next day or so, the National Hurricane Center does say that it has a chance of becoming the first tropical depression of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season as it moves northeastward off the coast of the Carolinas this weekend.
Here at home, Thursday features clouds and showers on the breeze, along with a bit of sun at times.  Heavy rains are possible, and so is flooding in low-lying areas, especially in northern Broward and Palm Beach counties.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches at least through Thursday night.  Highs on Thursday will be in the mid 80s.
Showers and a few storms will develop overnight and early on Friday.  Friday will see some sun, more clouds, and periods of showers and storms.  Friday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.
More sun will be around on Saturday, but we’ll also see storms at times.  Saturday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.
Sunday will bring a mix of sun and clouds, with mostly east coast storms developing in the afternoon.  Sunday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.
Monday will feature good sun, a few clouds, and passing showers.  Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s.
