Warm Rainy Weekend


Saturday will kick off a rainy weekend in South Florida. After a warm start with passing showers mostly in the Lower Keys, Saturday features plenty of clouds and showers moving in from south to north, starting in the late morning. We could see some heavy downpours at times, and some afternoon and evening storms are possible. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 80s in much of South Florida and the mid 80s along the Gulf coast.

Saturday night will be rainy, and Mother’s Day will bring another round of showers and storms. Sunday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.

Our wet pattern continues on Monday, with clouds, showers, and some storms. Monday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Tuesday will be another day of clouds with periods of showers and afternoon storms. Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

The low that’s been funneling in the rain will lift to the north on Wednesday, but clouds, showers, and afternoon storms will be around as moisture lingers over South Florida. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid 80s.
