Cloudy And Breezy With Showers; Watching The Tropics

Tuesday features lots of clouds on a brisk breeze.  Look for early morning showers near the east coast and a mix of showers and storms throughout South Florida during the afternoon.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches through Thursday evening, and minor flooding is possible in low-lying areas there at high tide.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid-80s.

In the tropics, we now have Tropical Storm Epsilon, which is about 765 miles southeast of Bermuda.  At 5 am Tuesday, Epsilon was located near 26.5 North, 54.7 West, and was moving east-northeast at 3 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 45 miles per hour.  Epsilon is expected to pass near Bermuda as a hurricane on Thursday.


In the western Caribbean, the low predicted by the computer models has formed.  It has a low chance of becoming a tropical depression during the next few days as it moves in the general direction of the Yucatan. Whether it develops or not, it is forecast to bring heavy rain to portions of western Cuba as well as the Yucatan.  As we always do at this time of year, we’ll keep an eye on anything in that part of the world.
