    Tuesday morning will start in the upper 70s and lower 80s in South Florida with highs peaking in the mid to upper 80s.

    It will be breezy with easterly winds between 10-20 mph and stronger gusts. There is a high risk of rip currents at local Atlantic beaches.

    Deep tropical moisture will begin to spread across South Florida Tuesday. As it does, clouds will increase from south to north. Although a few showers may move in on the breeze early, much of the morning will be dry. 

    Scattered showers and thunderstorms will form Tuesday afternoon and persist tonight, while wet weather likely arrives in the morning in the Keys.

    In fact, the moisture will likely linger through the weekend. That means there is the potential for several days of locally heavy rain beginning Tuesday night. Ponding of water on local roadways is possible.  Residents are urged to avoid any flooded roads in the coming days.
