Stormy Start to Fall

That summertime feel will stick around for South Florida for the first weekend of Fall.

Expect a stormy setup with scattered to numerous showers and storms from inland to the coast on Friday. The combo of light winds and deep tropical moisture will elevate the risk of street flooding during the afternoon/evening hours from developing downpours.
