Sunday Afternoon Showers And Storms For Florida; Watching The Tropics

Sunday features plenty of sun and a few clouds in the morning.  Then look for widespread showers and storms in the afternoon.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place along the Palm Beach County coast, and there’s a moderate rip current risk at the beaches of Broward and Miami-Dade..  Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the sticky low 90s along the Gulf coast.

While Larry is post-tropical and racing to oblivion in the northern Atlantic, the tropics are very busy.  The disturbance that’s now in the Bay of Campeche is likely to become a depression on Sunday or Monday as it moves generally northward.  Whether it develops or not, this system will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of Mexico, Texas, and coastal Louisiana during the week ahead.

We’ll be watching for a low that computer models indicate will form near the southeastern Bahamas in a few days.  The National Hurricane Center gives this potential feature a medium chance of developing by late in the workweek as it moves generally northwestward.

Elsewhere, the wave nearing the Cape Verde Islands has a low chance of developing, since conditions in its path are becoming hostile.  Another wave coming off the African coast is expected to have a moderate chance of becoming a depression in the next five days.  Way to the north, a nontropical low several hundred miles northeast of the Azores also has a low chance of developing.
