Rainy, Breezy, Cooler for South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 14, 2015 – South Florida will be breezy, rainy, and a bit cooler on Saturday as a front finally pushes its way through. Look for passing showers in the morning, followed by lots of clouds, more showers and maybe a storm, a building breeze, and highs in the low 80s.

Showers and clouds will linger on Sunday, and a strong breeze will lead to a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches. Sunday’s highs will be near the 80 degree mark.

Monday will be breezy, and showers will be around throughout the day. Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s. Rain chances will decrease on Tuesday and Wednesday, but afternoon highs will gradually increase to the mid 80s. A few showers will be around on Thursday, and highs will be mostly in the sticky mid 80s.
