As we exit the work week, high pressure will stay in firm control over So Flo. Expect a double dose of typical summer days with coastal showers and afternoon/evening storms favoring the inland areas off the sea breeze thru Saturday.

Models suggest a disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere (upper low) will bring ample tropical moisture our way. It is forecast to move in from the east and bring a soggy and stormy Sunday. With that being said, we cannot rule out anytime downpours by the afternoon/evening hours.

We will see a better chance of scattered to numerous showers and storms brewing by mid-week.

TROPICS

1

On Thursday afternoon, the National Hurricane Center started monitoring a tropical wave moving closer to Puerto Rico by the weekend. It has low development chances over the next 5 days.

If it holds, especially past the batch of dry air in the Atlantic, we could see downpours from deep tropical moisture close to South Florida. This is only if the the wave, over 1000 miles to the ESE of the Leeward islands, survives the long journey across the Atlantic waters.

Additionally, we are still monitoring a tropical wave and associated area of low pressure near the coast of Africa. The National Hurricane Center is maintaining a medium chance for tropical development over the next 5 days.

Currently, neither one of these features poses a direct threat to South Florida. Stay tuned to your Storm Station for all the latest updates!
