Sun, Clouds, Mostly Late-Day Storms

Tuesday features a mix of sun and clouds with periods of storms, especially in the late afternoon and evening.  Minor flooding near high tides is likely along the Atlantic coast.  Expect a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches of Broward and Palm Beach counties — and possibly at Miami-Dade as well.  Highs on Tuesday will be mostly in the mid 80s in the east coast metro area and the Keys and in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast.

In the tropics, there’s a nontropical low that’s forming in the northeastern Atlantic southeast of the Azores.  The National Hurricane Center says this feature could develop some subtropical characteristics this week before it moves into cooler waters.  But the chance of this feature becoming a depression is low — and it poses no threat to North America.
