Showers and Storms, Flood Watch for East Coast Thursday

Flood Watch

Showers and storms will be around South Florida on Thursday, and a flood watch is in effect for metro Broward and much of the Miami-Dade metro area through the evening hours.  Thursday features sun and clouds to start, with showers and storms developing from midday onward.  We could see heavy downpours in spots, which would lead to localized flooding in portions of the east coast metro area.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel quite a bit hotter with high humidity levels.

Friday will be another day of sun, clouds, showers, and storms, with somewhat greater storm coverage over the western part of our area.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for more of the same on Saturday — sun, clouds, and building showers and storms in the afternoon.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday will feature sun and clouds to start, with showers and storms returning in the afternoon.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday’s forecast includes sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

We’re not expecting any developments in the tropical Atlantic for at least the next several days.
