Clouds And Rain Today

Saturday Evening

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 21, 2015 – 
Clouds and rain are in store for South Florida on Saturday as a wet weekend is under way. After some early showers, Saturday features plenty of clouds and showers on the breeze, as highs reach the low 80s.

Showers will linger during the day on Sunday, and highs will top out near 80 degrees. Heavy showers and a few storms will move in late on Sunday in advance of a strong cold front.

The front will move through by early Monday, leaving a few showers on the strong breeze and decidedly cooler air, with Monday’s lows dipping into the mid 60s and afternoon highs just reaching the mid 70s. We’ll see an elevated risk of dangerous rip currents early in the week.

Tuesday will be breezy, with a few showers, and fall-like, morning lows in the low 60s and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Wednesday will be breezy and a bit warmer, with highs reaching the 80 degree mark again. We’ll see some coastal flooding in spots at high tides on Wednesday and Thursday. Thanksgiving will be breezy, with highs in the low 80s.
