South Florida Forecast: Widely Scattered Showers Thursday

Temps will be in the mid-80s

    Sunshine and warm temperatures prevailed on Wednesday, but isolated showers cropped up late in the day in southern Miami-Dade County.

    A weak cold front arrives Thursday which will generate a more favorable environment to support showers or even thunderstorms. These are expected to remain widely scattered under partly cloudy skies, with temperatures into the mid-80s.

    The front will weaken but stall near South Florida, so the chance of showers lingers into Friday as it becomes increasingly breezy with highs in the low 80s.

    It will turn downright windy this weekend with rip currents and rough seas for Saturday and Sunday. While building high pressure should prevent rain showers from forming, moist and moderately strong onshore winds could yield a sprinkle or two.

    Temperatures for the weekend will be slightly cooler, with highs near 80 degrees.
