Coastal Flooding, Storms Around

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Sept. 28, 2015 – South Florida will see more flooding at low-lying coastal locations on Monday, and storms are again in the picture. A coastal flood advisory is in effect on Monday and Tuesday, as some of the highest tides in the year will occur during the mid-morning and late evening.  image5Some early showers, building clouds, and afternoon storms will bring periods of heavy rain to some locations on Monday.  Monday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Look for more showers and storms on Tuesday and Wednesday, as tropical moisture streams into the area.  Highs will be in the upper 80s.  While showers and storms will be around on Thursday, look for a slow drying trend to begin and last into Friday.  Highs will be in the upper 80s both days.

In the tropics, Tropical Depression #11 formed late on Sunday.  At 5 am Monday, TD #11 two_atl_0d0was located near 27.3 North and 68.9 West, and was creeping west at 2 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour.  The poorly organized depression is expected to move more to the north, battle wind shear, and eventually be absorbed by a front before reaching the U.S. coast.  The area of disturbed weather now in the south-central Gulf of Mexico will eventually bring heavy rain to the northern Gulf coast and southeast U.S., but the National Hurricane Center gives it a medium chance of developing into a depression over the next several days.
