Showers and thunderstorms drifted through South Florida on Friday ahead of a cold front situated near Lake Okeechobee. Several flood advisories were issued for parts of Miami Dade due to the heavy rain . By nightfall everything had quieted down.
If the front holds, it should clear us on Saturday giving way to a drier and cooler airmass. Sunday promises to begin with morning temperatures near 70°leading to a mild and sunny afternoon with highs around the mid 80's. This should be a great weekend for outdoor activities so go out and enjoy as temperatures will begin to warm up again come the middle of the week.
In the tropics, we are monitoring two features, the first is in the central Atlantic, midway between the Lesser Antilles and the Cape Verde Islands. It only has a ten percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. Also with a ten percent chance of development is a disturbance in the central Caribbean Sea, but unlike the first wave, this system has the possibility of slight improvement later down the road.
Enjoy your weekend!
