Storms Stick Around

Thursday features lots of showers and storms once again.  Eastern portions of South Florida will see periods of showers and storms throughout the day and into the evening, while most of the rain will hold off until the mid afternoon (but also last through the evening) in western portions of the area.  Heavy rain and localized flooding are possible.  Expect a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Thursday will be in the mid 80s right at the Atlantic coast and in the Keys, with the rest of South Florida topping out in the upper 80s.
