By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct 8, 2015 – The rain will return to South Florida on Thursday, but a change is coming this weekend. Look for passing showers on Thursday morning, followed by afternoon storms, including periods of heavy downpours. Thursday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. It won’t be a good beach day, made worse by the threat of dangerous rip currents, especially in Broward. Friday will be unsettled, with morning showers and afternoon sea breeze storms, with heavy downpours in some locations. Highs will be in the upper 80s.
Moisture will hang around on Saturday, and showers and storms will be around, along with highs in the upper 80s. While some showers could linger into Sunday morning, a front will pass through, dropping humidity levels and keeping highs mostly in the pleasant mid 80s.
Monday will be pleasant, with refreshing morning lows near 70 degrees, low humidity, and highs in the mid 80s for Columbus Day.
Joaquin is now a post-tropical cyclone with top winds of 65 miles per hour as of early Thursday. It’s zooming east at 35 miles per hour and will bring rain and gusty conditions to the Azores and eventually to Portugal and Spain. Otherwise, the tropics are quiet.
