In the tropics, we have a new depression, at least for now. At 5 am Saturday Tropical Depression # 11 was located near 13.0 North, 53.5 West, about 500 miles east of the Windward Islands. TD # 11 had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and was moving west at 5 miles per hour. This system is expected to dissipate in a day or two.
Sun, showers, and a few storms are in South Florida’s forecast on Saturday. Look for some early east coast showers to start, followed by sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms working from east to west. Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees in most locations and a bit cooler right at the Atlantic coast.
Sunday will bring some sun, clouds, and periods of showers and storms. Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
An ocean breeze will dominate our weather on Monday, bringing in early east coast showers and pushing afternoon showers and storms to the west. Monday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Tuesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds, with passing east coast showers in the morning and sea breeze showers (and a few storms) in the afternoon. Tuesday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Wednesday will be another day of sun, clouds, passing showers, and maybe a stray storm. Highs on Wednesday will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Elsewhere, we’re watching a few features. An area of low pressure in the middle of the central Atlantic has a high chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression, far from land. Another area of low pressure, this one a couple of hundred miles south of Bermuda, has a low chance of developing. And we’re watching a wave in the eastern Atlantic that has a medium chance of developing as it moves westward.
