Lingering Storms And Downpours; Continuing To Watch The Tropics


lingeringSouth Florida will have to deal with lingering storms and downpours on Friday as the wave responsible for the rain moves northward. Friday features some passing morning showers, with more activity popping up by midday and through the afternoon. Some locations could see street flooding from periods of heavy downpours. Highs on Friday will be near the 90 degree mark.

Saturday will bring slightly drier air into the area, so look for a few early coastal showers on the breeze, a mix of sun and clouds, and afternoon storms (especially well inland) forming along the sea breeze. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday will feature an early shower or two, sun and clouds, and a few afternoon storms, especially inland. Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday will bring more of the same — a few early showers, sun and clouds, and afternoon storms in spots. Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

Faith Based Events

Tuesday’s forecast includes a mix of sun and clouds and some afternoon storms along the sea breeze. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

lingeringIn the tropics, the wave that’s been over us still has a low chance of developing into a depression as it pulls away from us, but its most important effects will be heavy rainfall. The wave in the Atlantic that we’ve been watching for some time still has a medium chance of developing late in the weekend or early next week when it encounters somewhat more favorable conditions. We’ll continue to watch it, but it is expected to remain well to our east. And the remnants of Franklin continue to dump heavy rain on Mexico.
