Sunny Today But Disturbance Bringing Wet Weekend


South Florida will be mostly sunny on Friday, but rain is on the way this weekend, thanks to an area of disturbed weather near Hispaniola that is moving westward. That disturbance is not a tropical system at this time, but it could eventually become a subtropical depression. In the meantime, Friday starts with a few east coast showers, and the day features good sun, a few clouds, and the chance of a stray afternoon shower. A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Friday will be in the mid 80s along the east coast and the upper 80s elsewhere. Showers will move in over east coast metro areas on Friday night.

Saturday morning will bring showers and lows in the low to mid 70s. The day will feature some sun, clouds, and periods of showers and storms. Saturday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Look for clouds, some sun, and periods of showers and storms on Sunday. Sunday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Monday will see lingering showers, sun and clouds, and the chance of afternoon storms. Monday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

Tuesday’s forecast includes good sun, some clouds at times, and a few afternoon showers and storms. Highs on Tuesday will be mostly in the mid 80s.
