Happy Sunday, South Florida!
This weekend continues to be a great one to catch up on movies we have been wanting to watch or any house chores we’ve been putting off!
After a wet start to the weekend, it looks like the soggy weather will continue again today. A disturbance current;y developing over the Gulf of Mexico will push towards South Florida later today. Ahead of the disturbance, plenty of moisture will creep back into the forecast as winds have already shifted out of the South. This will continue to leave grey skies & pockets of rain throughout the day, especially throughout the second half of our Sunday.
One added weather feature to take note of is that today the threat for thunderstorms returns to the forecast. And those thunderstorms have the potential to be strong or even severe! Timing looks to be late afternoon into tonight.
While main threats with any severe thunderstorms today would be damaging wind gusts, brief isolated tornadoes are also a possibility. Heavy rain will continue to be a big impact today, with some areas experiencing localized flooding due to all the rain that has already fallen this weekend.
That disturbance should be on the Atlantic side of Florida come Monday morning, but leftover moisture might still be enough to squeeze out a few morning showers. And while Monday will start off on the cloudy side, South Florida can expect improving conditions as we head into the afternoon and evening. (By the way…keep the jackets with you because temperatures will STILL be on the cooler side for the start of the work week.)
The rest of the work week looks drier but a mid-week cold front and a Northerly wind component will help keep temperatures in check, not allowing them to warm up any more than the 70s during the afternoon hours. Morning temperatures all week will also remain on the cooler side, with some areas in the Keys also dipping down into the 50s.
So keep that rain gear with you at all times this weekend. And by the start of the work week, we will be hanging up the rain jackets and reaching for our regular jackets!
Sweater weather is here to stay through much of the upcoming work week.
