Wet Wednesday and Week Ahead
We can expected isolated showers and thunderstorms throughout South Florida on Wednesday. The bulk of the moisture will be over the Keys as a elongated tropical wave from the Caribbean Sea moves into the southern Gulf of Mexico over the next couple of days. The chances for clouds and showers will stick around into Wednesday night.
Deeper tropical moisture is anticipated to move in for the rest of the week. We cannot rule out chances of showers and storms with possible downpours into the start of the weekend.
Eyes on the Tropics
An area of low over the northwestern Caribbean Sea is expected to move over the Yucatan Peninsula on Wednesday before tracking into the Southern Gulf of Mexico over the next 48 hours. This disorganized system still has a medium chances of tropical cyclone development over the next 3-5 days. An air force recon plane is scheduled to investigate the area on Wednesday.
Tropical Storm Jerry is still nearly stationary as it churns in the open central Atlantic waters. Approximately over 2,000 miles from Florida and 1,275 miles east of Bermuda, this system will remain a threat to the shipping lanes and not a threat to land.
