*Strong storms possible this afternoon. Localized flooding as well in parts.
Hopefully everyone had a wonderful long holiday weekend. A typical Tuesday is underway with a quiet start. By the afternoon, some showers and storms expected, but they will be slow moving due to the light ocean breeze we have in place. Moisture levels are thinning out and fewer storms can be expected for Wednesday and Thursday with the breeze picking up between 10-15mph.
Our forecast on Friday and Saturday, will depend on the tropics. We are closely watching the progress of a broad area of low pressure currently located over the Eastern Caribbean Sea into the tropical Atlantic Ocean. A handful of the models take it through Hispaniola and Cuba in the next 5 days and another batch have it curving North and remaining in the Atlantic Ocean. However, our rain chances for the weekend will need to be adjusted accordingly.
Rest of the Tropics:
-A wave over the Yucatan have a low chance to develop in the next 2 days. It will have a medium chance to develop as it moves over the Bay of Campeche down the road. Mexico should closely watching this one.
-Off the West coast of Africa we have another wave that has a low chance to develop in the next 5 days.
Have a great day South Florida and make it a safe one!
