*** Tropical Storm Watch for coastal West Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade. Also, Florida Bay included ***
Your Storm Station is watching Sandy's every move! It is approaching Jamaica as a category one system.
Plenty of things taking place in weather news!
First, here are the advisories for South Florida.
From the beaches west to I-95/US1 for Palm Beach, Broward and Miami Dade...Tropical Storm Watch.
From Lower Matecumbe north through the Upper Keys: Also under a Tropical Storm Watch.
Even though Sandy is expected to impact the Bahamas late Thursday night in Friday, we should get windy conditions.
Rain forecasts are unsure, some bring us little rain while others call for 1-2 inches.
Beach impacts: Will probably be greatest with some street flooding and minor coastal erosion. Rip currents with choppy seas will stick around through Sunday at least.
Sandy has been pounding Jamaica all day and will probably make landfall before 5 pm. Next Cuba, and eventually the Bahamas.
As things change, I will keep you updated.
The good news is that when Sandy gets pushed away and turns Northeast early Saturday, we will begin to see improvements. In fact, it looks like a small fall forecast will be felt on Sunday. Wake up lows in the middle 60s and highs in the low 80s with low humidity.
Have a wonderful Wednesday South Florida and make it a safe one!
