The area of disturbed weather we’ve been watching is now Tropical Depression # 3, and it will bring plenty of rain to South Florida and the Bahamas. At 5 am Monday, TD # 3 was located near 25.6 North, 78.6 West, about 120 southeast of West Palm Beach. TD # 3 was moving northwest at 13 miles per hour, and its maximum sustained winds were 30 miles per hour. TD # 3 is not expected to strengthen much and will stay just off the Florida east coast before dissipating during the next 2 to 3 days.
South Florida and the Bahamas can expect periods of heavy rain and gusty winds from TD # 3 on Tuesday into early Wednesday. Rainfall amounts on Tuesday could reach 3 inches in spots.
