Enough Rain, Already!

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Dec. 6, 2015 – South Florida has had more than enough rain, but we’ll have to endure a bit more of it on Sunday. After a terribly wet Saturday afternoon and evening (with parts of southern Miami-Dade receiving 6 to 9 inches), we’ll see passing showers again on Sunday, with lots of clouds and highs near 80 degrees.

Heaviest activity should be in the Keys, near the boundary of that pesky front that’s kept our weather unsettled. Building northeast breezes on Sunday should mean quick moving showers but also a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches.

Monday will be cloudy, with lingering showers and highs in the low 80s. We’ll see rain chances decrease on Tuesday, but a few showers will be around. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 80s. Drier weather and more sun will be in the forecast starting on Wednesday and lasting through the workweek, but we can’t rule out a stray shower in spots. Highs will remain in the low 80s through Friday.
