South Florida will be breezy and drier on Wednesday, but we’re also watching the tropics for a late May disturbance that could have some effect on our holiday weekend weather.
Meanwhile, Wednesday features sun, clouds and maybe a stray shower on the breeze, the chance of an isolated inland storm, a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches, and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Sun and clouds are also in the forecast on Thursday, along with highs in the upper 80s and to chance of a stray shower.
Friday will see a few more showers but mostly sun and clouds, and highs will be in the seasonable upper 80s.
The holiday weekend forecast is complicated by a disturbance in the Atlantic which has a low chance of development over the next several days. The system is likely to move slowly to the west-northwest or northwest, and if it remains poorly organized, moisture from it could lead to plenty of passing showers and storms over South Florida from Saturday through Memorial Day.
A slightly stronger system (or one remaining well east of the Bahamas), would limit us to passing showers and a few inland storms and put our afternoon highs near 90 degrees during the holiday weekend.
We’ll keep an eye on it, but it’s a reminder that hurricane season is just around the corner.
