WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Tropical moisture combined with daytime heating, the seabreeze, and several weak upper level disturbances moving through have already produced several severe thunderstorms across the area.

These storms contain torrential rainfall, excessive lightning, small hail, and damaging wind gusts.

Some drier air (relatively speaking) is expected to arrive later in the week but that might be temporary as a surge of tropical moisture could arrive from the Caribbean by next weekend.

NHC says there's a 30% chance of tropical development in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico in the next 5 days but it's way too soon to say if it'll have any impact on South Florida just yet.

Regardless, it looks like a soggy week ahead and it could get even soggier depending on what/where that tropical system does.
