Yuck! Windy, Cloudy, Rainy Monday

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 19, 2015 – South Florida will start the workweek with a windy and dreary Monday. Look for passing showers on a strong northeast wind as a front moves through the area. Clouds and some showers will linger on a windy day when highs will top off in the low to mid 80s. Surf conditions will be dangerous, with a high risk of rip currents and rough waters offshore.

Tuesday will be windy again, with a high risk of rip currents, passing showers, plenty of clouds, and highs in the mid 80s. The breeze will slowly taper off, as will shower chances, during the second half of the workweek, but a few showers will be on the breeze, along with periods of sun, from Wednesday through Friday. Look for highs in the mid 80s each day.
