Tropical wave has higher chance of development. What does it mean for us?

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Tonight, a few showers moving into the Treasure coast.

We will be generally on the drier side Friday with just a couple of showers here and there, and a few storms inland around the lake in the afternoon.

As we head toward Saturday, that's when some deeper moisture pushes into South Florida. Rain chances at about 60% by the time we get to Saturday. Daytime highs around 90°.

"The storms will start along the coast and then move inland as the day goes on," WPTV First Alert Weather meteorologist Steve Villanueva said.

Then for Sunday, a similar situation as tropical air sticks around.

Next week, the pattern changes and we start to see more of an offshore flow. That will keep the storms up and down Interstate 95.

In the tropics, we continue to watch an area of disturbed weather to our east. Invest 92-L has a 40% chance of developing, but it's staying north of us and heading up toward Jacksonville.

"A little better organized," Villanueva said. "But it does have some headwinds ahead of it. Either way, it's gonna stay to the north of us and push up towards Jacksonville and over towards Georgia as we head into the next 24 to 36 hours."


Tropical Storm Alberto made landfall Thursday morning and is producing ample rainfall and quite stormy conditions for northern Mexico and southern Texas.
