WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The weather will deteriorate overnight into Friday with rain likely and strong storms possible.

A wind advisory is in effect from Friday noon to 8 p.m. Saturday. South winds of 20-25 with gusts to 40 mph.

Hazardous boating conditions Friday into the weekend along with a high risk of rip currents

Most of the rain will be heavy showers, but we can't rule out thunderstorms in the mix.

Rain chances increase across our area overnight through Friday morning. We look to get a break in the action in the middle of the day Friday before more rain moves in Friday night into Saturday morning.

We are out of the marginal risk of severe weather with localized flooding and gusty winds our biggest threats.

Temperatures in the upper 70s Friday and Saturday, then cooler and mostly sunny Sunday with highs in the mid-70s.

Next week is trending calmer and closer to normal near 80 and a mix of sun and clouds with the classic Florida 10% to 20% rain chances.
