WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Scattered storms expected once again through your Friday evening - and some of the storms could be strong to severe - especially where storm boundaries collide.

Otherwise, as we head into the holiday weekend, we will start to see a drying trend for Saturday

For Saturday, we'll have about a 30% chance of showers or storms.

But for Sunday and Monday, rain chances come down more as dryer air starts to filter into South Florida.

Early next week looks, for the most part, on the dry side too. But by the middle of the week, we're back up to a 40% to 50% chance of afternoon showers and storms.

In the tropics, there is a 10% chance that an area of low pressure develops off the Carolina coast. Doesn't seem likely, but we will continue to monitor that.
