MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It’s a wet Wednesday across South Florida due to an increase in moisture associated with a tropical wave over the Bahamas.

Throughout the day we’ll see scattered showers and storms on and off again due to a strong onshore breeze and plenty of deep moisture moving in from the Atlantic.

The CBS4 storm team is tracking a surface trough of low pressure that has a low potential of tropical cyclone development as it moves Westward 10 to 15 miles per hour.


September 10th marks the peak of Hurricane Season and during this time of year, the most active time of the season, we need to closely monitor any disturbances that develop so close to home.

Regardless of whether the wave over the Bahamas becomes a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm, it will bring South Florida a better chance of storms the next few days and possibly even through the weekend.

There’s a potential for heavy downpours at times, gusty winds, dangerous rip currents and rough boating conditions as the trough of low pressure moves in our general direction.
