Drier Days Ahead

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 11, 2015 – South Florida will see drier days ahead, as a weak front moves in on Sunday. After some early showers, mostly in the upper and middle Keys, Sunday will feature sun and clouds, highs mostly in the mid 80s, and scattered afternoon showers and maybe a storm well inland. Minor flooding is still possible in some low-lying locations after Sunday morning high tide after 8 o’clock.

Monday Forecast

We’ll discover pleasant weather on Columbus Day, with morning lows around the 70 degree mark, plenty of sun and some clouds, lower humidity, and highs in the mid 80s. That will set our pattern for most of the workweek — just a chance of a shower and pleasantly seasonable temperatures. Look for more moisture to work its way in on Friday, bringing some morning showers and the chance of an inland afternoon storm, along with highs in the mid to upper 80s.
