South Florida will be starting the work week by dodging raindrops while parts of the area will be watching for the potential impact of Tropical Storm Elsa.
Showers, storms and winds pick up Monday. A flood advisory was in effect for Miami-Dade County until 6:30 p.m., with an additional 2-3 inches of rain expected.
Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the west coast of Florida up to Fort Myers. A small craft advisory is in place for the waters off the Miami-Dade and Broward coast.
Wind and rain will peak overnight and into early Tuesday as Elsa makes a glancing blow near Key West. The lower Keys could see gusts above 40 mph and rain amounts totaling 3 inches or more.
Storm surge shouldn't be much of an issue for South Florida.
The system will pull north of us Wednesday and we will see improving conditions. You can still count on some scattered thunderstorms with warmer highs in the upper 80s.
Rain chances drop to 40% with highs near 90 by the end of the week. Look for similar conditions this weekend.
