Home Weather A Weekend Of Clouds And Showers

A Weekend Of Clouds And Showers


South Florida will see clouds and showers for the weekend and beyond as a couple of fronts affect our weather.  Saturday features plenty of clouds and passing showers, especially in the east coast metro area, thanks to a weak front.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Saturday will be mostly in the low 80s.

St. Patrick’s Day will bring clouds and showers (but perhaps a pot of gold beneath the rainbow if the leprechauns cooperate).  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Look for an unsettled Monday with showers and clouds.  Monday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.

Tuesday will feature showers, clouds, and maybe a storm as another front moves in.  Look for heavy rain at times.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.

Wednesday’s forecast includes lots of clouds and some showers, but not as concentrated as earlier in the week.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 70s.
