WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — High pressure over the western Atlantic will continue gusty beach breezes along with seasonably warm temps on Sunday

Rain chances are slim (about 10%) although a passing sprinkle might roll in off the ocean due to these easterly winds.

If you're headed to the beach this Sunday you'll notice those red flags indicating the risk of dangerous rip currents so only swim at guarded beaches.

This blocking high pressure system is expected to slide farther east and weaken its grip on our weather by early next week allowing a cold front to move in by Wednesday and/or Thursday.

Right now the front looks weak but could spark a few scattered showers & t'storms; with the highest chance on Wednesday

Keep your fingers crossed on that because we do need the rain!

Highs will top out in the lower 80s (mid 80s farther inland) this weekend which is near normal for late-April.
