Rain To The East, Clouds Everywhere


South Florida will be cloudy and east coast locations will see rain on St. Patrick’s Day.  After a cloudy morning, rain chances go up throughout the area in the afternoon as a weak front approaches, but the majority of the showers will be in Miami-Dade and Broward.  Highs on Sunday will be in the low 80s.

Monday will be a cloudy start to the workweek, and shower chances will increase as the day progresses.  Monday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 70s.

Look for a rainy and cloudy Tuesday as tropical moisture streams in.  A storm isn’t out of the question in spots.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.

Wednesday will be cloudy with showers, but those showers will finally taper off.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.

It will feel more like March in South Florida on Thursday, with good sun and a few clouds.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 70s.
