It was a soggy Thursday across parts of South Florida with some areas getting over two inches of rain. That led to street flood advisories. We should see above average rain chances thru Monday.

Saharan Dust

A huge plume of Saharan Dust is being pushed Westward across the Atlantic Ocean with the leading edge already in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. This dust helps keep storm formation in-check by stealing all available moisture to use as fuel. Good news regarding any tropical threat.

The dust should impact Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands over the weekend. If it doesn’t fall apart, it should arrive across South Florida, Cuba and the Bahamas by Monday. This will mean dry, hazy and warm conditions with beautiful sunrises and sunsets, but the dust is an irritant so it will be a concern for folks with respiratory issues.
