Showers on Thursday

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 29, 2015 – Showers are once again in the forecast for South Florida on Thursday. After early showers (some featuring heavy downpours) and patchy fog in spots, look for some sun, clouds, and more showers in the afternoon, with a few storms possible in the western suburbs. Thursday’s highs will be in the sticky mid 80s, with some locations reaching the upper 80s. Coastal flooding is likely in low-lying areas near high tides late Thursday morning and again Thursday evening near midnight. Drier air will stat to work its way into South Florida on Friday, but we can’t rule out some passing showers.

Friday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Saturday will feature pleasant ocean breezes and a few passing showers at times, with highs in the mid 80s. Saturday evening should be mostly dry and just a little spooky for trick-or-treaters. Adults will set their clocks back one hour, since standard time begins early Sunday, ushering in a pleasant breezy day with a few quick showers and highs in the mid 80s.
