However, we expect less widespread coverage of showers and storms this weekend as an area of low pressure continues to push away from us in the Atlantic.

The moisture tail from the low is currently helping to keep higher moisture amounts across extreme South Florida.

The highest rain chances on Saturday will be during the afternoon hours with some heavy downpours possible.

Because our ground is so saturated, we will need to be on alert for localized flooding, especially in low-lying areas.

High temps this weekend will rebound into the upper 80s with a little more sunshine and less rain.

As we head into next week, high pressure builds in returning us to a more typical summertime pattern with the best chances for storms staying inland.

Boating: Seas generally will be 2 feet or less through the weekend with higher seas in and around showers and storms.

Tropics: An area of low pressure off Hatteras has a 10% chance of development as it moves away from us. In addition, we're watching for possible development in the Bay of Campeche (50%). But even if this develops it will be moving west away from us.
