MIAMI (CBS4) – A dry and quiet start across South Florida will transition into showers and thunderstorms in the late afternoon to early evening courtesy of a low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico and a frontal boundary.
Central and northern Florida are already getting soaked with nasty weather associated with this storm system which is pushing East.
CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez said we will see the rain roll through late Thursday, especially Thursday night into Friday.
With the heating of the day, plenty of available moisture and an unstable atmosphere, there is a threat for strong to severe storms with the potential of hail, gusty winds, lightning and the slight chance of a tornado.
Thursday morning is mild and muggy with temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Highs will climb to the mid 80s in the afternoon with a building breeze.
Behind the front, drier air will arrive this weekend and high pressure will dominate the weather pattern providing us with abundant sunshine, a pleasant breeze and slightly cooler temperatures. Lows will drop down to the low 60s. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
