Boo-tiful Florida Weather for Halloween

Halloween features lots of sun and just the chance of a stray shower during the day.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains at the Gulf beaches and along the Palm Beach County coast.  The evening hours will be dry with a few clouds — plus some ghosts and monsters in spots.  Highs on Sunday will be in the seasonable low 80s.

Monday will bring mostly sunny skies and a gentle breeze as November begins.  A stray east coast shower is possible.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Tuesday will feature a nice mix of sun and clouds and a gentle ocean breeze.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid-80s.

Faith Based Events

Wednesday will see lots of sun, a few clouds at times, and some quick east coast showers in spots.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid-80s.

Thursday’s forecast calls for a mix of sun, clouds, and passing showers.  Highs on Thursday will be in the mid-80s.

There are a couple of tricks in the tropics, however.  The low we’ve been watching is now Subtropical Storm Wanda (last name on the regular 2021 Atlantic list).  At 5 am, Wanda was located near 36.5 North, 43.9 West, and was moving east-southeast at 16 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour.  Wanda is expected to wander in the central Atlantic this week, far from land.  And there’s more.  An area of low pressure well to the south of the Cape Verde Islands has a low chance of developing as it moves generally northwestward — at least until it reaches an area of unfavorable conditions in the open eastern Atlantic in a few days.
