South Florida will see clouds and some sun — literally — on Monday as we experience a partial eclipse in the afternoon. After a muggy start, Monday features a mix of sun and clouds, a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches, and a stray shower in spots. Coastal locations should have the best view of the eclipse, which will reach its peak (78% coverage of the sun) shortly before 3 pm. Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.
The wave we’ve been watching arrives late on Monday and into Tuesday, so look for plenty of rain, including periods of downpours. Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Clouds, showers, and storms will linger on Wednesday, and all that rain will lead to some localized flooding. Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s.
Some sun will return on Thursday, but clouds, showers, and storms will still be around. Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Friday’s forecast includes a few early showers, a mix of sun and clouds, and passing showers and storms. Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
In the tropics, the wave that will bring us plenty of rain was east of the Bahamas early Monday. This wave has a low chance of developing into a depression during the next two days, but its odds go up to medium over the five-day period as it lingers off the U.S. coast. In the Caribbean, the remnants of Harvey have a medium chance of redeveloping before reaching Central America but a high chance of regaining depression strength again over the Bay of Campeche. And the wave in the middle of the Atlantic has virtually no chance of developing as it encounters unfavorable conditions.
