Keep The Umbrella Handy Over The Weekend
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – After a wet, windy and wild week of weather across South Florida the area woke up to just a few showers this morning.
Some areas enjoyed sunshine, while others are seeing some showers here and there.
With plenty of tropical moisture in the mid to upper levels of the atmosphere and a strong onshore flow due to a Bermuda high parked over the western Atlantic, we will see passing showers from time to time throughout Friday with brief downpours in spots.
Some of these showers will move quickly due to the strong East to Southeasterly wind flow. Once again, the windy weather will lead to a dangerous high risk of rip currents at the beach. It will not be safe to go swimming and beach-goers should heed the warnings and red flags to stay out of the water.
Friday, winds will be out of the east about 10 to 18 mph with gusts as high as 25 mph. The gusty breeze will also lead to hazardous marine conditions. A small craft advisory has been issued due to choppy conditions on the Bay and 4 to 7 foot seas.
Saturday, the winds will relax just a bit, but there will still be a breeze at about 8 to 15 mph.
Friday, high temperatures will be in the mid 80’s and clouds will build in across the area. Some forecast models indicate this afternoon most of the showers and storms that develop will be carried towards the West coast.
However Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe county will see a 50 percent chance of rain.
Over the weekend mother nature will turn up the heat with highs soaring to the upper 80’s. With the additional heating and the sea breeze coming into play, storms will fire up in the afternoon with some heavy rain in spots as we kick off the month of June.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season also starts Saturday, June 1st. June tends to be one of the wettest months of the year. And early next week an even stormier trend is setting up.
