Showers Blowing East To West Again

Some showers will be blowing into South Florida on Tuesday.  The day begins with some east coast showers.  Then more moisture — and periods of showers — moves in from the Atlantic and spreads westward.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Tuesday will be mostly in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s in the interior and along the Gulf coast.
Wednesday will see some drier air arrive during the day, so look for sun, some clouds, and an isolated shower.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s along the east coast and around the 90 degree mark elsewhere.
Moisture returns on Wednesday night, and the showers will linger on Thursday. Thursday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Friday will bring some early east coast showers, followed by sun, clouds, and scattered showers before another batch of drier air arrives late in the day.  Friday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Saturday will feature sun, clouds, and a few showers in spots.  Highs on Saturday will range from the upper 80s at the east coast to the low 90s in the interior and along the Gulf coast.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Leslie is lingering in the open Atlantic.  At 5 am Tuesday, Leslie was located near 31.6 North, 55.6 West, and was moving southwest at 7 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were up to 65 miles per hour.  Leslie is forecast to reach hurricane strength before finally moving northward late in the week.  Elsewhere, an area of low pressure in the southwestern Caribbean has a low chance of development during the next 5 days as it moves slowly northwestward.  We’ll keep an eye on it.
