Wednesday features some sun at times but plenty of showers and storms.  The east coast metro area will see passing storms in the morning and early afternoon, with showers dominating the late afternoon and evening.  The Gulf coast will see early showers, followed by storms in the mid-afternoon through the evening.  Heavy rain and localized flooding are possible.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains along the Palm Beach County coast, and there’s a moderate rip current risk at the beaches of Broward and Miami-Dade.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s right at the coasts and near 90 degrees elsewhere in South Florida.
