Sunshine & Spotty Showers
Posted by Phil Ferro
Drier Days are on the Way
Clouds will stick around with a chance of showers and storms on Thursday night. The slow moving front, north of Lake Okeechobee, responsible for our showers and storms this week will start moving through the Florida Straits over the next couple of days.
As high pressure builds in behind this rainmaker, drier air will blow through South Florida as winds shift out of the northeast and drop humidity. Friday will bring mostly sunny skies with a chance of storms and showers in the Keys.
A shift in the winds and pick up in the sea breeze will bump up the chances of spotty showers and storms in South Florida on Saturday.
Eyes on the Tropics
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a cluster of clouds and rain about 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. This slow moving large disturbance is expected to track to the northwest. It has a low chance, 20%, of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 3-5 days.
