Friday will feature plenty of sun and a few clouds at times around South Florida.  Friday’s highs will be in the mid-80s.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with some afternoon storms in the east coast metro area.  The streak of sunny days will continue along the Gulf coast. Look for a brisk and gusty breeze near both coasts.  Saturday’s highs will be in the mid-80s.

Sunday’s forecast calls for a mostly sunny and breezy day with periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be mostly in the mid-80s.

In the tropics, the wave approaching the Windward Islands has a high chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.  We’ll continue to keep an eye on it as it makes its way through the Caribbean.

Elsewhere, the wave in the eastern Atlantic is now Tropical Depression # 12.  At 5 am, TD # 12 was about 480 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, and TD # 12 was moving northwest at 8 miles per hour.  TD # 12 is forecast to stay in the open Atlantic.
