Autumn Nice Weather; Keeping An Eye On The tropics

autumn nice
South Florida’s weather will be mostly autumn nice on Wednesday, but we can’t rule out a stray shower.  Wednesday features a mix of sun and clouds, along with an ocean breeze that could push a shower or two inland.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place along the Palm Beach coast, and there’s a moderate rip current risk at the beaches of Miami-Dade and Broward.  We could see some minor coastal flooding at high tides on Wednesday through Friday.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid 80s at the Atlantic coast and the upper 80s elsewhere.
Thursday will bring sun, clouds, and a few more showers on the breeze.  Thursday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.
Friday will feature passing showers along with sun and clouds.  Friday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.
A front moves in late on Saturday, so look for clouds and some showers on the breeze during the day.  Saturday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.
Sunday morning will be refreshing, with much lower humidity and lows mostly in the upper 80s.  We’ll see sun, a few clouds, and highs in the low 80s as the weekend comes to a close.
In the tropics, a low is forming well to the northeast of the Lesser Antilles.  It has a medium chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression during the next 5 days as it moves slowly north and then turns westward.  We’ll keep an eye on it.
