Sun And Showers Kick Off October; Watching The Tropics


OctoberSouth Florida’s Sunday features sun and showers as the month of October begins. Look for some early showers in spots, as a day of sun and clouds also brings periods of passing showers. We could see a few storms in spots, and periods of isolated heavy rainfall are possible. Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.


Monday will be breezy, with clouds, showers, and storms moving through. Monday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Tuesday will be on the windy side, and showers and storms will blow through. Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

Faith Based Events

The breezy and wet trend continues on Wednesday, with periods of showers and storms. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid to upper 80s.

We’ll see more moisture move in as the tropical wave now off Hispaniola affects our weather on Thursday, so clouds, showers, and storms are in the forecast. Thursday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

In the tropics, Maria is now a post-tropical system, and we’re keeping an eye on that low off north Florida that has affected our weather during the last few days. That feature has a low chance of developing into a depression during the next several days. And the wave centered between Puerto Rico and Hispaniola has virtually no chance of developing, but it will bring us tropical moisture during the second half of the workweek.
