MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Wednesday started with thunder roaring as storms rolled over Miami-Dade.
Storms came racing in from the Atlantic waters during early Wednesday morning and one storm even became severe as it moved over Key Biscayne.READ MORE: US Dept. Of Health: Number Of COVID-19 Hospitalizations In Florida Continue To Decline
The morning rain has since ended and the radar will remain calm through the early afternoon hours. However, an upper-level low is knocking at South Florida’s door with more moisture headed our way. The non-tropical low is tracking over the Bahamas but moisture surrounds it so another round of spotty storms will hit South Florida’s coast by mid-afternoon on Wednesday.READ MORE: Florida Joins Fight Against Airline Partnership Between American Airlines & JetBlue
The upper-low is expected to continue to slide westward and over the Sunshine State through Thursday so the chance for scattered storms is high for the end of the work week. There will be a surge of tropical moisture Friday and through the weekend. Tropical downpours are expected each of those days.
As far as for those sweltering 100-degree “feels-like” temperatures go, that has ended thanks to the return of rain and we also say good-bye to Saharan dust. In addition to the higher rain chances, the winds will get breezier and turn out of the northeast on Wednesday. Expect winds of up to 20 mph with gusts up to 25 mph throughout the day.MORE NEWS: Man Who Suffered Severe Burns Reunites With Staff Who Helped Save His Life At Kendall Regional Medical Center
Afternoon temperatures will be between the upper-80s and near 90 degrees through the weekend with overnight lows in the upper 70s.
