Showers And Storms Have Returned

Showers and storms have returned to South Florida on Thursday.  The day starts with some early east coast showers.  Then we’ll see some sun, clouds, and showers and storms moving in on an easterly wind.  A high risk of rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 80s.
Friday will see drier air move in, so look for sun, clouds, and maybe a stray shower on the breeze.  Friday’s highs will be in the upper 80s at east coast locations and the low 90s along the Gulf coast and well inland.
Saturday will feature sun and clouds on the breeze, with a few showers in spots.  Saturday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Sunday will bring sun, clouds, passing showers in spots, and maybe a stray storm.  Sunday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Monday will see more moisture move in, so clouds, showers, and some storms are in the forecast.  Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s.
In the tropics, Hurricane Leslie is moving slowly in the open Atlantic.  At 5 am Thursday, Leslie was located near 31.4 North, 57.1 West, and was moving north at 8 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 80 miles per hour.  Leslie will linger for several days, causing swells and rough seas along the U.S. east coast.  Elsewhere, the area of low pressure off the Central American coast has a low chance of developing into a depression as it moves toward the Yucatan and the southwestern Gulf of Mexico during the next several days.
