Showers, Storms Will Move East To West Today

Showers and storms will be moving from east to west across South Florida on Wednesday.  After overnight showers and storms, Wednesday brings morning showers to the east coast metro area.  While the eastern areas see rain taper off in the afternoon, the showers and storms shift to inland areas and the Gulf coast.  Highs on Wednesday will be near 90 degrees.
Thursday will feature east coast showers in the morning, and then western portions of South Florida will get afternoon showers and storms.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Friday will bring periods of showers and storms, with some sun.  Friday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Look for a mix of sun, clouds, and passing showers and storms on Saturday as the holiday weekend begins.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Sunday will see the arrival of more moisture as a tropical wave approaches, so showers and storms will be more widespread.  Highs on Sunday will be mostly in the upper 80s.
In the tropics, a wave is expected to emerge from the African coast late Thursday or early Friday.  It is forecast to have a low chance of developing during the weekend as it moves west-northwest.  But development could be limited as it moves east of the Cape Verde Islands.
