Pleasant With Passing Showers

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 13, 2015 – South Florida will be pleasant on Tuesday, with a few passing showers in the mix. After a mostly dry morning featuring fall-like lows near 70 degrees, the day features sun, clouds, highs in the mid to upper 80s, and a few passing showers on the breeze during the afternoon.

Wednesday will see a few more showers, lows in the low to mid 70s, and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

The breeze increases on Thursday, along with shower chances, and highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.

Friday and Saturday will be breezy with showers and maybe a storm in spots, the risk of dangerous rip currents will increase at the beaches, and highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

Sunday will be quite windy (causing a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches), showers will be around most of the day, and highs will top out in the mid 80s.
