Thanks in part to Tropical Storm Laura churning in the waters south of Cuba, parts of South Florida could be in for a wet and windy Monday.
A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for parts of Miami-Dade County until 2:30 p.m. Monday with 60 mph wind gusts possible, the National Weather Service said. The warning included Miami, Hialeah, South Miami, Key Biscayne, Miami Beach and Coral Gables.
It was one of several severe thunderstorm warnings issued Monday in Miami-Dade.
The lower and middle Keys were under tropical storm warnings with the latest Laura advisory. This means gusts to 39 miles per hour or higher are likely Monday from Craig Key to Key West.
A wind advisory was also in effect for coastal areas of Broward and Miami-Dade counties until 2 a.m. Tuesday while we've seen many places gusting 30+ mph already. Look for scattered showers and storms from time to time as well.
Gusty winds will be possible through the day today with stronger winds possible the farther south you are in the Keys. Additionally, a few outer rainbands could work into the area bringing thunderstorms that could potentially be strong with heavy rain, frequent lightning & gusty winds.
Weather conditions improve by Tuesday with isolated rain chances and breezy conditions through midweek.
