After yesterday’s record rains, the weekend will remain partly cloudy, with more scattered thunderstorms heading into South Florida.
The rainfall reached 2.31 inches Thursday, up from the record 1.64 inches in 1979. And the rain won’t be letting up over the weekend.
According to the National Weather Service in Miami, the days will be warm with showers and storms rolling through overnight and into the mornings.
“It’s summertime in Florida,” said Andrew Kennedy, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service.
A few scattered storms will make their way into South Florida on Friday, but will clear out over the afternoon. Saturday will be a little drier, with the bulk of showers moving into the West Coast. The chance of rain will go up on Sunday.
Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
The wind will stay down over the weekend, with no advisories in store for boaters, said Kennedy.
