Storms In Spots; Tracking Andrea (UPDATED)

  South Florida will see storms in spots on Tuesday, as we track recently-formed Subtropical Storm Andrea. 

Tuesday features sun and a few clouds to start, and then afternoon storms will pop up in spots.  The risk of dangerous rip currents will be on the increase from Tuesday into the weekend.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 80s. 

Wednesday will bring blue skies and a few clouds.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and around 90 degrees elsewhere. 

Thursday will be sunny and a bit breezy.  Thursday’s highs will be in the upper 80s along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere. 

Faith Based Events

Friday will be another mostly sunny and breezy day.  Friday’s highs will range from the mid 80s to near 90 degrees. 

Saturday will feature lots of sun and breezy conditions.  Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast and in the interior.

Subtropical Storm Andrea formed in the western Atlantic Monday evening.  At 5 am Tuesday, Andrea was located near 30.0 North, 69.0 West, and was moving west at 6 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour.  This uncommon (but not unheard-of) pre-season system is already interacting with the front which will absorb it in a day or two.  In the meantime, it’s expected to bring rough surf and gusty winds to Bermuda by mid-week.
