Rainy Days Ahead; Watching The Tropics

Some rainy days are ahead for South Florida as we watch the tropics during the first part of the workweek.  Monday features some early sun and showers and clouds during the afternoon.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter.  Monday night will bring showers and storms, especially along the east coast, as we feel the influence of an area of disturbed weather that’s currently near the Bahamas.

Look for some sun early on Tuesday in the east coast metro area, followed by showers and storms later in the day.  The western part of our area will see a mix of sun, clouds, and showers on Tuesday.  Tuesday‘s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Clouds, showers, and storms will linger in the east coast metro area on Wednesday, while the Gulf coast and interior will get sun alternating with clouds and showers.  Wednesday‘s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Thursday will feature sun, clouds, and showers, with more activity in the east coast metro area than elsewhere.  Thursday‘s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Friday’s forecast includes good sun, clouds at times, and passing showers in the afternoon.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.
In the tropics, we’re watching an area of disorganized showers just east of the Bahamas.  The National Hurricane Center gives it a low chance of developing over the next few days, but it will pump additional moisture into South Florida late on Monday into Wednesday.  We’ll keep a close eye on it, because it’s right in our neighborhood.
