A moisture surge is underway and it’s likely to lead to wet and unsettled weather.   As the weekend continues, we’re following low pressure crossing westward through the Straits of Florida.   It’s the same low that had hints of tropical potential (according to several forecast models) much of last week.   The disturbance may still be able to organize in the days ahead, but probably not until it passes into the Gulf of Mexico.  For south Florida, the system has all the signatures of a rainmaker… especially as our winds turn more southerly from Sunday into Monday.   We’ll tap into the overspread of tropical moisture through the first half of the week, giving us high rain and thunderstorm chances.   Be aware that sudden downpours  are possible, even likely.   If the storm movement tends to slow down, streams of rain could lead to flood concerns across parts of the region.   At this point, we’re expecting more rain to arrive in batches and it’s hard to say where we’ll rack up the most significant rainfall.   A general “rain forecast range” between 2 and 6 inches seems reasonable through Wednesday (and that’s obviously a lot)!   The eventual track of the low pressure disturbance will also determine how long this “extra rainy” pattern will last.
