Gusty Winds With Periods Of Rain Today

Gusty Winds

Gusty WindsSouth Florida’s weather is all about gusty winds and periods of rain on Friday. After passing overnight showers (especially heavy in the Keys), Friday will feature clouds and additional rounds of passing showers on a windy day. It’s not a beach day, which is a good thing — because the risk of dangerous rip currents is high at the Atlantic beaches on Friday and will remain high through Sunday. Highs on Friday will mostly be in the upper 70s.

Gusty WindsShowers will continue to move through overnight, and a few will be around early on Saturday. Saturday will be breezy, and we’ll see some sun along with the clouds. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Sunday will feature good sun and a few clouds during most of the day, but more clouds and a few showers will move in late as a weak front moves through. Sunday’s highs will make it into the low 80s.

Monday will be drier and only slightly cooler. We’ll see highs near 80 degrees on a day with lots of sun and a few clouds.

Look for a nice mix of sun and clouds on Tuesday. Tuesday’s highs will be near the 80 degree mark.
