Showers, Breeze, Some Coastal Flooding

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 26, 2015 – 
South Florida will start the workweek with showers on the breeze and some coastal flooding at high tides on Monday. After a few early showers, look for building breezes bringing in a few quick showers, a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches, some flooding in low-lying areas around high tides (around 8:30 am and 9 pm), and highs in the seasonable mid 80s. Tuesday will be breezy as well, with a few passing showers, a moderate risk of rip currents, minor coastal flooding again, and highs in the mid 80s. Wednesday will continue our string of breezy days, and a few showers will be around. Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid 80s. Look for an increasing chance of showers on Thursday and Friday as a weak front approaches. Highs will be mostly in the mid 80s both days.
