Rainy rounds

Rain has made a big return.   Batches of heavy downpours dampened our day on Tuesday, all arriving off the ocean waters.  South Florida is also noticing more clouds and more humidity.   A push of tropical moisture (from the southeast) is the culprit for the wetter weather.   As a weak disturbance crosses the region through Wednesday, more areas of rain and storms will likely pivot the area, too.   Forecast models have not had a good handle on the extent of the rain activity so far.   The main concern will be the likelihood of “lighter wind speeds” with lingering moisture for the midweek.   The slower moving rain bands (across already saturated areas) could lead to instances of street flooding.   Looking ahead, slightly drier conditions with fewer showers will highlight the home stretch of the week.
