Ample tropical moisture is in place across South Florida to fuel scattered showers and isolated storms in the morning. We will get some sort of break along the coast this afternoon with the focus of the activity shifting inland. By the evening, rain and storms develop once again.
Soggy stretch continues into Friday. However, our weekend weather will depend on the tropics. A strong high could keep the deep moisture South and into the Caribbean. A weaker high will drag more moisture and keep our rain chances high.
Just watching and waiting.
Today in the Tropics
Tropical wave located midway between the West coast of Africa and the Windward Islands is producing a large area of showers and storms. This system continues to show signs of organization and conditions appear favorable for a depression to form during the next few days. It is moving West-Northwest at about 20 mph and should reach the Windward Islands on Friday. NHC giving it a high chance to form.
Another tropical wave located a couple hundred miles East of the Lesser Antilles remains disorganized. The chance for growth is going down as it moves quickly West to West-Northwest at 20 to 25 mph. It will pass through the Lesser Antilles today and then cross the Eastern and Central Caribbean late week. Heavy rainfall to spread across portions of the Lesser Antilles during the next few days.
