STORM SETUP FOR HOLIDAY WEEKEND – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

Happy Sunday, South Florida!

Hopefully everyone was able to enjoy the sunny and scorching conditions we saw for most of Saturday. The afternoon thunderstorms we were expecting proved to be a bit more delayed and developed westerly and then moved over our metropolitan areas during the evening hours. Until then, South Florida had perfect conditions. This morning we woke up to warm and humid conditions with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Meanwhile, the FL Keys started with a few showers and thunderstorms.

With the southerly wind flow still in place, moisture will continue to channel into our area. This means that the moisture available for rain will remain high. So, throughout the day today, expect scattered showers and thunderstorms across South Florida. And while it’s not expected to be a one-day wash, it would be wise to keep the umbrella nearby in case you encounter rain, as we expect thunderstorms are growing again in our metropolitan areas this afternoon.

Looking ahead, the unstable weather pattern continues until the start of the next work week, which happens to be Memorial Day. Rain (sometimes heavy) and slow scattered thunderstorms will again be possible. High temperatures will stay in the upper 80s in very humid conditions. As we fast-forward into the middle of the work week, our chances of rain will be a little more typical and the sea breeze will be driven away each afternoon. And after a few days of enjoying a typical weather pattern here in South Florida, it looks like the humidity may actually rise again as we turn the corner towards the end of the coming work week.

Changing course, as the Atlantic hurricane season officially kicks off on Wednesday, June 1, the National Hurricane Center is already keeping a close eye on the tropics. Remnants of Hurricane Agatha (the first named storm of the season in the Pacific) may reappear in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and/or the northwestern Caribbean. If this holds, an area of ​​low pressure could develop and then slowly drift east to northeast later in the work week. We will have to watch the tropics in the next few days.

Have a safe holiday weekend!
