More Sun … and Coastal Flooding

coastal floodingSouth Florida will see more sun on Wednesday but also more coastal flooding from November’s king tides. Look for sun, a few clouds, maybe an early stray shower, and highs in the upper 70s. Low-lying areas will again see flooding near high tide Wednesday morning, and the coastal flood advisory remains in effect into the afternoon.

A breeze will build on Thursday, and the day features sun, some clouds, and highs in the upper 70s.

Friday will be breezy again, with sun, clouds, and another day of slightly cooler than normal highs in the upper 70s.

Saturday will bring sun, clouds on the breeze, and highs in the upper 70s.

Sunday will also feature sun and clouds on a breezy day, and highs will top out in the mid to upper 70s.
