Summerlike Storminess

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Dec. 3, 2015 – Even though it’s early December, South Florida’s weather will be as stormy as summertime for the next few days, thanks to tropical moisture and an approaching front. After overnight showers and storms, Thursday will feature showers and storms, with periods of heavy rain, gusty winds, lightning, and localized flooding. Cloudiness will keep highs mostly in the upper 70s.
