Sun, Clouds, Some Showers Today; Nate Now A Tropical Storm

Showers Today

Showers TodaySouth Florida will see sun, clouds, and some showers today as Tropical Storm Nate moves inland in the southeastern states. Our Sunday features some early passing showers, but we’ll mostly see a mix of sun and clouds as a bit of drier air moves in. A Coastal Flood Advisory remains in place on Sunday until Monday morning, so low-lying areas can expect some flooding at high tides. Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.

Showers TodayMonday will bring a mix of sun and clouds, along with more widespread shower activity. Monday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Tuesday features sun, clouds, and a few passing showers as we start to see a drying trend. Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Look for sun, clouds, and maybe a stray shower or two on Wednesday. Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Showers TodayIn the tropics, Nate made landfall twice as a hurricane — once near the mouth of the Mississippi River and again near Biloxi, Mississippi. Now a tropical storm, Nate is racing north-northeast at 23 miles per hour. At 5 am Sunday, Nate was located near 31.5 North, 88.4 West, with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour — but rapid weakening is likely as it brings heavy rain throughout much of the eastern U.S. over the next couple of days. Elsewhere, the low in the central Atlantic is not very well organized, but the National Hurricane Center still gives it a high chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression during the next few days.
