MIAMI (CBS4) – After a dry, breezy and beautiful weekend across South Florida, wet weather will return to our area this week.
All the ingredients are coming together to transport moisture and enhance the instability across South Florida on Monday through midweek, according to CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez.
A surge of moisture moving North from the Caribbean combined with the moisture associated with the frontal boundary soaking the Southeast will lead to a very ‘juicy’, unsettled atmosphere. As the front dips down South, these two areas of moisture will converge across South Florida and lead to a better chance of strong to severe storms today with the potential for heavy downpours, localized flooding, lightning, gusty winds, even the slight chance of small hail.
The clouds will be on the increase Monday. It will feel very ‘Summery’ with higher humidity levels and highs in the low to mid 80s. Gonzalez said we will get a taste of the rainy season this week as the front stalls out which will increase the chance of storms.
But it won’t last very long. Drier air moves in later this week into the weekend.
