WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The rain will start to taper off across the area after 1 a.m., but more wet weather will return Saturday morning.

It will be very windy after the rain stops overnight. We could see wind gusts of 40-50 mph overnight even without the rain.

The latest computer models show another round of intense rain and storms Saturday at about 8-9 a.m.

Finally, it looks like rain chances decrease after around 2 p.m. Saturday and the sun may even come out to close the day. There is a chance for yet another quick round of rain to end the day around sunset time. It will still be pretty windy all day too.

Dry air moves in Sunday and winds pick up again in the afternoon, just from a different direction, out of the north, then north-northeast as a front pushes south. Highs will be a bit cooler and more refreshing, in the mid to upper 70s.

Monday and Tuesday will continue to be on the breezy side but sunny and pleasant. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Hazards along the coast will drop a bit Saturday afternoon, then pick up again late Sunday and persist most of next week. Boating and beach conditions will be treacherous.
