After a brief break, passing storms are back in South Florida on Thursday, thanks to moisture from a tropical wave to our south. Look for periods of showers and storms moving on a building easterly breeze throughout the day, sun at times, and highs in the upper 80s. Rain chances will be greater for the east coast metro areas and the Upper Keys, but the Gulf coast won’t escape without some showers and storms.
Tropical moisture lingers on Friday, and all of South Florida will see passing showers and storms on the breeze, some sun and lots of clouds, and highs in the upper 80s. East coast locations will see fewer showers and storms on Saturday, with the bulk of the rain in the interior and along the Gulf coast.
Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in Miami-Dade and Broward and in the upper 80s in the Naples and Marco Island areas.
We’ll be back into a typical September weather pattern on Sunday, with sun and clouds, some afternoon storms in the western suburbs of Miami-Dade and Broward and more widespread afternoon storms in the interior and along the Gulf coast. Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Look for a repeat on Monday, with some afternoon storms in Miami-Dade and Broward but more widespread activity in the interior and in the Naples and Marco Island areas. Monday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
In the tropics, we’re watching one area — the wave near the Cape Verde Islands. The National Hurricane Center gives the wave a high chance of developing into a depression over the next 5 days as it moves generally to the west-northwest into the central Atlantic.
