Strong to Severe Storms Possible Today

Strong storms are possible in parts of South Florida as a front arrives on Sunday.  The day begins with a warm morning, and showers will move in as the day progresses.  Look for storms to develop, especially in northern portions of South Florida, in the late morning and afternoon.  Some of those storms could be strong, with dangerous lightning, heavy rain, and damaging winds.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches, and the risk of rip currents is on the increase at the Gulf beaches.  Highs on Sunday will be in the mid 80s.

Showers will linger overnight, and Monday will feature a mix of sun and clouds as cooler air filters in.  Monday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.

Tuesday morning will be quite cold, with lows ranging from the upper 40s to mid 50s.  Tuesday will bring lots of sun, but highs will top out in the upper 60s.

Wednesday will start off with another cold morning, with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.  We’ll see a warming trend begin during the day.  Wednesday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 70s.

A few showers are possible on Wednesday night and on Thursday, but Thursday will mostly see sun and clouds.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 70s
