More Treats Than Tricks Thursday

  Thursday features good sun, clouds at times, and a few afternoon showers in spots (with maybe a stray storm along the Gulf coast).  A high risk of rip currents continues along the Palm Beach County coast, and there is still an elevated risk of rip currents at the Broward and Miami-Dade beaches.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 80s.  The evening should be mostly nice for Halloween festivities, but trick-or-treaters may need to beware of a few showers in spots.

Friday will bring a mix of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers, with the bulk of the shower activity along the Gulf coast and well inland.  Friday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Saturday will continue the trend of sun, clouds, afternoon showers, and unseasonable warmth.   Saturday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.  Don’t forget to move your clocks back one hour on Saturday night to mark the start of Standard Time.

In the tropics, the low we’ve been watching in the north central Atlantic is now Subtropical Storm Rebekah.  At 5 am Thursday, Rebekah was located about 535 miles west-northwest of the Azores and was moving east-northeast at 21 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 45 miles per hour.  Rebekah won’t be around for long.  It’s expected to become post-tropical on Friday and dissipate on Saturday.
