WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The breezy winds continue here in South Florida producing rip currents at the beach and a small craft advisory over the ocean.

High pressure continues to dominate to the north, creating an easterly wind up to 25 mph.
Continued windy tomorrow with some lingering showers in the morning then sunshine expected in the afternoon.

The trough still has a low chance of becoming a tropical cyclone. A 30% chance now as low pressure has formed, but it's battling dry air at the moment. Most of the rain with that will end up moving well to our north up toward Jacksonville, Georgia, and South Carolina. But we'll still have some showers and storms around.

For Friday and into the weekend, rain chances at about 40%. We'll still have an easterly flow. So it's more of a summertime pattern. The afternoon sea breeze marches inland and will trigger those late-day storms closer to the lake.

Summer officially begins tomorrow at 4:50 p.m. and we have a full strawberry moon on Friday evening.

We also continue to watch Tropical storm Alberto in the Gulf of Mexico. It has another 24 hours before it makes its way into Mexico and spreads heavy rainfall there. There's a chance for another to form in the same area and do the same thing over the weekend and next week.
