Too Warm and Sticky for November

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 19, 2015 – South Florida is too warm and sticky for November, but it appears that will finally change. In the meantime, Thursday is another unseasonably hot and humid day, with highs in the mid to upper 80s, passing showers, and a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches.

The rain returns on Friday, as showers and storms develop in advance of a front that will stall out over the area. Friday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Showers will linger on Saturday as the breeze picks up, and highs will top out in the low 80s.

Sunday will be showery and breezy, with highs near the 80 degree mark. The risk of rip currents increases this weekend, remaining high into Monday.

We’ll see some showers on the breeze as a stronger front clears the area on Monday, leaving afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s. Our real taste of fall comes on Tuesday, with drier conditions, morning lows in the low 60s, and afternoon temperatures only reaching the mid 70s.
