When it comes to storm surge, there are two important points those living in flood zones should know: how far from the beach the water will spread and how high that water will rise.
Spotty showers will be possible across South Florida Sunday with partly sunny skies. It will not, however, be a wash-out.
Two names will no longer be used for tropical storms or hurricanes in the Atlantic or the northeast Pacific.
Saturday will be mostly dry with the exception of a few stray showers possible on an easterly breeze.
Be ready for a hot afternoon across South Florida with temperatures nearing the upper 80s.
The weather improves Sunday with a dry trend continuing most of the week. Temperatures Sunday and Monday will be cooler and pleasant with highs in the upper 70s.
It will be a hot afternoon Sunday with highs reaching the middle 80s, but there will be plenty of sunshine.
A few showers and an occasional thunderstorm will be possible for Saturday.
A strong cold front moving across the Florida peninsula could bring strong and possibly severe thunderstorms across South Florida late Monday afternoon and into early Tuesday morning.
