It is Florida’s rainy season so this isn’t anything out of the ordinary but if you were planning a visit to South Florida or perhaps you had some outdoor plans scheduled you may want to have an indoor Plan B should you need to take it.
A trough digging across the mid-west is moving east. This trough will slowly push south through the end of the week only helping to deepen the moisture fetch for parts of South Florida to see more showers and storms for the next several days.
How much rain are we talking?
Approximately, 3-6 inches in most spots with some locally higher amounts around 6-8 inches. Again, this isn’t anything S. Florida can’t handle but be advised the afternoon hours will hold a pretty high chance of widespread showers/storms tomorrow through the end of the weekend.
The heaviest of rain showers will be concentrated across the east coast of Florida where several sea breeze boundaries will trigger afternoon storms pushing onshore. Coral Springs and Boynton Beach could total close to 9 inches of rain by the end of the week. We certainly won’t be seeing all day rain. Mornings will likely begin with calm and sunny skies with afternoon daytime heating yielding more development of storms.
Tropical Storm Maria is also churning up the ocean waters keeping high surf advisories in effect for portions of the Florida Peninsula alongside with dangerous rip currents.
Stay vigilant. High Surf Advisory will stay in effect for areas in and around West Palm Beach, FL through Wednesday.
