Mostly Dry Today But Wet Weather Is On Its Way

South Florida will enjoy one more mostly dry day on Wednesday before moisture returns us to a typical rainy season weather pattern.  Look for sun and clouds on Wednesday, with a few showers in spots developing in the afternoon along the sea breezes.  Highs on Wednesday will be near 90 degrees right at the Atlantic coast and the lower 90s elsewhere.
Thursday will feature hot sun and afternoon showers and a few storms along the Gulf coast and the interior, with just an isolated shower or storm in the Miami-Dade and Broward metro areas.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees at the east coast and the low to mid 90s elsewhere.
More widespread afternoon showers and storms are in the forecast for Friday, along with periods of sun.  Friday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Passing showers and storms are in the forecast for Saturday.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Sunday will be another rainy season day of sun and clouds alternating with periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.
The tropics have finally quieted down.  Joyce is now a remnant low in the eastern Atlantic.  Currently, we’re just watching a wave about 1200 from the Leeward Islands.  This wave has a low chance of developing during the next few days, and it will encounter hostile upper level winds over the weekend.
