Showers And Storms Today, Drier Thursday; Watching The Tropics

Drier

DrierSome showers and storms will still be around South Florida on Wednesday, but drier days are ahead. Wednesday features a somewhat cooler start than we’re used to, and we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds early. Showers and storms will develop in the afternoon, but the sea breeze should push much of the activity well inland — a good thing after Tuesday’s dangerous flooding in Miami Beach and some other areas. Wednesday will also see a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Palm Beach county beaches, as swells from what was Tropical Depression Emily arrive. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s — but it will feel even hotter.

Drier air arrives on Thursday, so we’ll see plenty of sun, a few clouds, and just the chance of a stray storm — more likely in the northern parts of the area. Thursday’s highs will be in the low to mid 90s.

Friday will bring a nice mix of sun and clouds and just the chance of a stray afternoon storm. Friday’s highs will be in the low to mid 90s.

Look for moisture to work in on Saturday, so a few afternoon storms will form along the sea breeze. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

Sunday’s forecast includes a few early showers, a mix of sun and clouds, and afternoon storms in spots. Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

DrierIn the tropics, Emily has lost its tropical characteristics as it continues to pull away from the southeast U.S. coast. Elsewhere, a wave approaching the central Atlantic has a low chance of developing during the next several days.
