It’s Supposed To Be The “Dry” Season

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Dec. 1, 2015 – South Florida should be in the dry season, but you won’t know it from this week’s weather. Some showers will move through on Tuesday, even though this should be the driest day of a wet week.

Wednesday will start out mild and mostly dry, but showers will return in the afternoon, along with highs in the mid 80s.

Thursday and Friday will be very unsettled, with passing showers and storms, gusty winds, and periods of heavy rain. Thursday’s highs will be in the sticky mid 80s, but temperatures will top out around 80 degrees on Friday as a front approaches.

The weekend will be cooler and breezier, and showers will pass through. Highs will be in the upper 70s both days, and Sunday morning lows will be in the low to mid 60s.
