Showers And Storms Today For Florida; The Tropics Are Busy

Monday features some morning sun, but showers and storms will develop, mostly in the afternoon.  Storms could be slow-moving, so heavy rain and localized flooding are possible, especially near the Gulf coast.  Highs on Monday will be near 90 degrees.

Tuesday will bring a mix of sun and clouds during the first half of the day, with showers and storms developing in the mid to late afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Wednesday will repeat the pattern — sun and clouds in the morning and periods of showers and storms in the afternoon.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Thursday will feature mostly sunny skies until showers and storms pop up again, mostly in the afternoon hours.  Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Friday’s forecast calls for good sun and some clouds alternating with plenty of showers and storms.  Look for breezy conditions in the east coast metro area and an elevated rip current risk at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

In the tropics, the wave approaching the Windward Islands has a high chance of becoming a depression as it tracks across the Caribbean.  The area of low pressure off the northern Gulf coast has a low chance of development as it moves slowly westward in the direction of southern Texas and northern Mexico.  And a wave in the eastern Atlantic has a low chance of becoming a depression in the next five days as it moves west-northwestward.
