WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — As a ridge of high pressure strengthens over the Atlantic and pushes east. Our winds will go from southeast to south to southwest.

Friday will feature mostly sunny skies and highs in the low and mid-80s. An isolated shower on the breeze is possible but we will stay mainly dry.

The southwest wind flow will push temps into the upper 80s and even close to 90 degrees for some by Sunday.

By Monday, a front will be across the southeast United States and will begin to move south as a trough pushes across the east coast. Look for a 40% chance of showers and the possibility of a few storms.

The highest chance of storms looks to be around the Lake Okeechobee region.

Rain totals look to range between .25 to .50 inches for most areas.

High pressure then builds back in from the north bringing a drier air mass to the region.  Temps will drop into the mid-70s for highs by Wednesday.   

A high risk of rip currents will impact area beaches on Friday.
