South Florida will be rainy again on Tuesday, even as Tropical Depression Emily pulls away from Florida. Tuesday will feature a few early showers and mostly cloudy conditions until another round of storms from Emily’s moisture tail moves over our area in the afternoon and early evening. Heavy downpours and localized flooding are possible in some spots. Highs on Tuesday will be near 90 degrees.
Drier air will work its way in on Thursday, so look for a mix of sun and clouds with a few afternoon storms, mostly well inland. Thursday’s highs will be in the low to mid 90s.
Friday’s forecast includes an early coastal shower, a mix of sun and clouds, and a few mostly inland afternoon storms. Highs on Friday will be in the low to mid 90s.
Saturday will bring a few morning showers, a nice mix of sun and clouds, and a few afternoon storms along the sea breeze. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Tropical Depression Emily is moving away from Florida. At 5 am Tuesday, Emily was located near 28.3 North, 80.1 West, or about 50 miles east-northeast of Vero Beach. Emily was moving east-northeast at 12 miles per hour and had peak winds of 30 miles per hour. Some strengthening is possible as Emily moves well off the U.S. east coast, and it should lose its tropical characteristics in a day or so.
