After a wet weekend for much of the time, South Florida will experience much of the same to start the work week thanks to the latest front arriving in the area.
The first line of storms produced 1 to 3 inches of rain in Broward County on Monday afternoon. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for the area. The National Weather Service noted 60 miles per hour winds and chances of hail.
Another round of storms edged closer to the west Broward metro area on Monday evening. There is a risk for storms in Miami-Dade County later in the evening for areas that have yet to see any wet weather.
A warm and muggy day with scattered storms was in the forecast for Monday afternoon with feels-like temperatures well into the mid-90s. A front will inch a little closer to us on Tuesday, raising our rain chances a bit.
We keep a good chance of rain in the forecast through Wednesday before dropping those chances a bit more later in the week and into the weekend. We stay locked into the upper-80s for temperatures throughout.
As of Monday morning, Tropical Storm Arthur has winds of 45 mph and currently sits south of Morehead City, North Carolina. Impacts include tropical storm force winds, rough surf and rainfall possibly exceeding 5" along the coast. The system will move away from the coast later Monday and Tuesday.
