Local weather: We are taping into some added moisture from the Bahamas and that is leaving us with unsettled weather at times. Therefore, look for showers and storms in the forecast with a high rain chance through Friday.
Hermine is getting closer to the coast. It will likely become nearly stationary by tonight with a turn toward the northeast to occur on Wednesday. Hopefully in the next 48 hours it will fall apart. In the meantime, rough surf, rip currents and beach erosion possible along the east coast.
A tropical wave located a few hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands is showing signs of organization. The National Hurricane Center is giving it a medium chance to develop in the next 5 days.
Another tropical wave located in the eastern Caribbean Sea is producing disorganized showers and storms for Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. It is moving west at 15 to 20 mph. Conditions will be slightly more favorable for growth once is approaches the Yucatan peninsula in the next few days. Right now, the chance is low for development.
Have a wonderful day South Florida and make it a safe one!
