WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Expect a typical summer day on Tuesday and Wednesday with a few showers along the coast early, then late-day storms inland. There is a 40 percent chance of storms.
By Thursday, as the remnants of Ida move to the northeast, a front will be dragged down to the region.
This will help rain chances increase. Plus, the flow will go offshore, so late storms will push towards the east coast metro areas.
This weekend, a lot of tropical moisture will start to push towards the area, keeping rain chances higher with tropical downpours possible.
Tropical Storm Ida is set to become a tropical depression later Monday. The storm will continue to move to the north, then turn towards the east and head up toward the northeast.
While the winds will get weaker, it will continue to produce some rainy weather on the way.
Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Kate has formed and will stay in the Atlantic Ocean with no threat to land.
The National Hurricane Center is watching an area near Central America that has a 20 percent chance of development. Some of the moisture from that could affect us this weekend.
Finally, a wave near Africa has a 90 percent chance of development. The next name is Larry. Models spin up a system but keep it over the ocean.
