Rainy Days

Rainy DaysRainy days are ahead for South Florida as tropical moisture streams in on Wednesday. As the wave we’ve been watching moves in, Wednesday features rounds of showers and storms, with periods of heavy downpours possible. Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.


Thursday will bring additional showers and storms, and localized flooding is possible in spots. Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Friday features clouds and periods of showers and storms, even as the low associated with the wave moves northward and away from us. With so much rain (and more to come over the weekend), we will be dealing with the effects of flooding in many areas. Highs on Friday will be near 90 degrees.

Faith Based Events

Moisture will continue to stream in on Saturday as passing showers and storms develop. Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Sunday’s forecast is much the same — clouds, showers, and some storms, thanks to continuing tropical moisture. Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.

In the tropics, the wave that’s over us has a low chance of developing into a depression (but conditions may be more favorable in a few days, when it’s over the Atlantic and away from us). The remnants of Harvey are now in the Bay of Campeche, and there is now a very high chance that they will redevelop. At the very least, the system will bring flooding rains to Texas, Louisiana, and parts of Mexico on Friday and Saturday.
