South Florida will be windy and stormy again on Wednesday as a strong tropical wave moves in. After overnight showers and storms, Wednesday features clouds and passing showers and storms on a gusty wind. Coastal flooding is possible at high tides (around 9 am and 9 pm) in low-lying areas, and a high risk of dangerous rip currents continues at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid 80s.
Thursday will extend our streak of windy and rainy days, with clouds, showers, and storms around. Thursday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.
Friday will see a bit of sun at times, but don’t rule out showers and occasional storms on the breeze. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 80s.
The weekend forecast depends on what happens to a disturbance that is now in the northwestern Caribbean. For now, we’ll say that Saturday and Sunday will feature some sun, more clouds, and passing showers and storms. Highs on both days will be in the upper 80s.
In the tropics, the wave responsible for our stormy weather has a low chance of developing into a depression during the next 5 days. And that disturbance now in the northwestern Caribbean has a high chance of developing into a depression after it enters the southern Gulf of Mexico this weekend, so we’ll keep a close eye on it.
