Plenty of Tropical Rain From TD # 3

South Florida will get some rain on Tuesday, thanks to Tropical Depression # 3, just to our northeast.   Tuesday features some sun, clouds, showers, and storms in the east coast metro area, while the Gulf coast sees sun, clouds, and typical summertime showers and storms.  The heaviest rains from TD # 3, though, should remain over the northwestern Bahamas.  Highs on Tuesday will be near 90 degrees, but steamy conditions will make it feel quite a bit hotter.

Look for sun, clouds at times, and afternoon showers (especially in the east coast metro area) on Wednesday.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Thursday will bring a mix of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers, with the east coast metro area seeing greater rain chances.  Thursday’s highs will be mostly in the low 90s.

Friday will feature sun, clouds, and afternoon showers, with the Gulf coast and interior seeing much of the activity.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Faith Based Events

Saturday will be mostly sunny with just the chance of a shower along the east coast, but elsewhere, look for a mix of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers.  Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

Tropical Depression # 3 formed on Monday afternoon from the area of disturbed weather in the Bahamas that we’ve been watching.  At 5 am Tuesday, TD # 3 was located near 27.0 North, 79.5 West, about 40 miles east-northeast of West Palm Beach.  TD # 3 was moving north at 12 miles per hour, and maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour.  The system does have some chance of strengthening into a tropical storm in the next day or so before dissipating near the North Carolina coast.
