Scattered Showers Start The Day Before Drying Out

drying out

drying outSouth Florida begins Thursday with a few showers, but then we’re drying out for a while. The low that brought in the rainy weather is now well off the Central Florida coast and moving east, so we’ll see drier air in its wake. But some spotty showers will move through Thursday morning. Then we’ll see fewer clouds and some sun as the day progresses. Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 70s. The risk of dangerous rip currents diminishes rapidly on Thursday but remains at moderate levels in Palm Beach County.

The breeze continues on Monday, a day that features plenty of sun and a few clouds. Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s.
