Friday morning in South Florida temperatures starting off in in the mid to upper 70′s along the coast and low 70′s inland. Another round of fog is possible this morning with a few isolated showers moving from in west to east. Friday afternoon, highs warming into the mid to upper 80′s. Showers and some strong storms possible late this afternoon through the evening as moisture associated with Potential Tropical Cyclone 16 moves toward the Panhandle. Computer models showing the heaviest of that rain starting after 3 pm across Palm Beach County and then lifting toward the Treasure Coast by the early evening hours with clearing conditions by tonight.

Saturday, lows in the upper 70′s and highs reaching the upper 80′s. Skies remaining mostly cloudy with dry conditions for the first half of the day with only a few isolated showers and then the potential for some late-day storms. However, with clouds overhead it will be difficult to get those thunderstorms fueled up throughout the day; still not ruling out the chance for some scattered thunderstorms, some of those storms could be on the strong side. The Storm Prediction Center has taken out of the risk for any severe storms, keeping that threat to the north of the viewing area.

Sunday, the tropical disturbance to the north will start to lift out into the Atlantic, resulting in drier conditions for South Florida. So rain chances starting to drop Sunday through early next week. Skies remaining partly sunny with light west winds.

By the middle of next week, a cold front is expected to push down, ushering in some “cooler” air by the middle of next week. Also, with the front pushing through, rain chances will be on the increase.
