Breezy Showers, Tidal Flooding on Tuesday

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 27, 2015 – 
South Florida will see more showers on the breeze this Tuesday, but the big story along the coast is more tidal flooding due to the full moon. Look for quick passing showers throughout the area, but coastal residents will be dealing with salt water flooding in low lying areas around high tides midmorning and around 9 pm. Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Wednesday will bring coastal flooding in low lying areas at high tides, and breezy conditions and quick showers will be in the forecast again. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s on Wednesday. Rain chances go up on Thursday, and highs will reach the somewhat sticky mid to upper 80s. Clouds and showers will linger on Friday, and highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.

Saturday will be less humid and more seasonable, with highs in the low to mid 80s, and just a few not-so-spooky showers will pop up on Halloween. Daylight savings time ends early Sunday morning, so set your clocks back one hour after the Halloween fun.
