As things heat up today the sea breeze will develop and move inland, triggering showers and storms as it does. Without any significant breeze that means these storms will be slow to move through and out of the area, minor flooding is possible in and around these storms as they develop.
Plenty of moisture is stuck over the area for now but that will all change later this weekend and early next week.
A cold front will move south and be followed by a stronger northeast breeze later Sunday. That wind direction does not really drop the temperatures much but it will significantly lower our humidity.READ MORE: Hollywood Police Officer Yandy Chirino Killed In Line Of Duty, Suspect In Custody
