Some Rain, Some Sun

South Florida’s Sunday weather features some rain image4and some sun. Moisture associated with a disturbance entering the Gulf of Mexico will increase rain chances here in South Florida, especially in the Keys. Look for passing showers and storms alternating with periods of sun. We’ll also see a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches on Sunday and into the first half of the workweek. Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

More showers and storms will move in on Tuesday, thanks to another surge of tropical moisture, and highs will be in the upper 80s around the area.

Look for a few afternoon storms in Miami-Dade and Broward on Wednesday, but the Naples and Marco Island areas will see more widespread afternoon storms. Highs will be around 90 degrees on Wednesday.

Thursday features a few early east coast showers, highs around 90 degrees, and passing afternoon storms in the western suburbs of Miami-Dade and Broward, in the interior, and along the Gulf coast.

some rainSome good news from the tropics — both the disturbance west of the Keys and the wave north of Puerto Rico are encountering unfavorable conditions and now have virtually no chance of developing into depressions.

But the wave that’s several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles has a high chance of developing and could reach depression status in a day or two. The good news — it’s forecast to remain in the central Atlantic and not threaten land.
