Breezy, Showery Thursday

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 15, 2015 – 
Breezes will be building in South Florida, and showers will be moving through Thursday morning and beyond. Some of those showers could bring periods of heavy rain and even a few embedded storms. The breeze will push most of the activity to our west during the mid to late afternoon. Thursday’s highs will be in the sticky upper 80s.

Friday will be breezy with periods of showers as a weak front moves through, and highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. The risk of dangerous rip currents will increase from Friday through the weekend as winds pick up.

Saturday will be breezy with gusty showers and highs in the mid 80s. A stronger front sweeps in on Sunday, bringing windy conditions, clouds, and showers. Sunday’s highs will be in the mid 80s. Breezy conditions and passing showers are in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday, and highs will top out in the low 80s both days.
