Where is the rain? It’s delayed, but still expected in South Florida



If you were dreading the expected rain Tuesday afternoon, you’re in luck.

The wet weather is delayed because a cold front is moving across Florida more slowly than expected.

The bad news: Rain is expected later in the evening.

But when it does rain, the showers won’t be heavy.

“Since the front is now weakening, there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms, but not strong enough to bring about flooding,” said National Weather Service forecaster Evelyn Rivera.

Along with some raindrops, the air will be cooler Tuesday night, with lows expected to dip into the 60s.

Through Monday, high temperatures will remain in the lower 80s with lows in the lower-70s.

Depending on the front’s behavior as it moves inland, Wednesday’s rain chance stands at 50 percent. Mostly cloudy conditions will continue with possible light showers during the day.

The front’s movement will also determine how much it rains from Friday to Monday. Rain chance is now 20 percent over that span.
