Stormy Setup

Rounds of rain are in our Thursday forecast as deep tropical moisture continues to surge in our direction.

As the day progresses, the cloud cover will build even more and bring numerous to scattered showers and storms our way by the afternoon. This is all from an area of disturbed weather over the Caribbean Sea seeping into the Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center is also monitoring this feature. Models suggest a low could form over the next couple of days. It has a medium chance for development over the next 5 days before a dig into the jet stream makes conditions less favorable. Regardless of development, this will be a rainmaker for South Florida into the weekend.

In addition to the Caribbean moisture, a front will move towards northern Florida by Friday. It is expected to stall out over the Sunshine State and trap the tropical moisture over us. This will lead to round of rain and high chances of anytime downpours for the weekend and into next week.
