POSSIBLE END OF DAY THUNDERSTORMS – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

Happy Saturday, South Florida!

Hope everyone had a great working week! Apart from a disturbance, the impression triggered showers and thunderstorms early Friday morning, most of the week was dry in South Florida and we were able to enjoy considerable weather without the torrential rains we have known not so long ago. And it looks like the drier pattern will continue (at least for much of the day) as this morning South Florida woke up to balmy and very calm conditions.

A high pressure system remains nearby as plenty of dry air remains over South Florida. This, combined with the southeast breeze, will keep the rain to a minimum today, especially on the southeast coast of Florida. Some [very] indoor showers will be possible due to the heating of the day, although *most* activity will be west of our metropolitan areas. Things start to change tonight, however. A group of showers and thunderstorms from the central Florida region may track south into our region very late in the day and possibly reach southern Florida late this evening. So while today will be mostly dry for much of the day, keep umbrellas close by if you plan to be out late this evening.

Sunday is Father’s Day and it looks like we might see showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. A weak front will stall north of our area as our wind pattern veers south to southwest. This will help usher in some moisture to start with while the front helps trap that moisture in South Florida. And while Father’s Day isn’t supposed to be a complete washout, be sure to have the umbrella with you in case you encounter a shower. The best chance of showers and thunderstorms will be just after lunchtime and into the afternoon.

Looking ahead, the start of the work week remains choppy at times as the weak front mentioned above remains locked north of our zone. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible for the first half of the work before the front dies out and high pressure returns to forecast. Afternoon high temperatures at the end of the work week will warm back into the lower 90s as we continue to enjoy drier conditions in South Florida.

Have a good week-end!
