If you were hoping for a nice, sunny commute home, think again.
A low pressure system brought thunderstorms and showers early Tuesday morning, but according to the National Weather Service, they’re expected to continue through the afternoon and evening.
That means drivers may encounter reduced visibility, and flooding in areas with poor drainage, said meteorologist Christopher Fisher.
“There’s a pretty good chance that most people will see some rain,” Fisher said.
Never miss a local story.
The weather service forecasts a 70 percent chance of rain Tuesday, decreasing to 40 percent Wednesday and 30 percent Thursday.
The storm clouds are slow-moving and will dump lots of rain over a short time. Drivers may see dry pavement one mile and pooling water the next.
“It’s going to be a kind of hit and miss,” Fisher said.
On Tuesday morning, Key Biscayne and Miami Beach were hit with scattered thunderstorms, and the University of Miami Hurricanes had to delay their football practice because of lightning.
The chance of rain is expected to drop late evening and overnight.
Later in the week, coastal South Florida will get rain during the morning and early afternoon. Western suburbs will get rain during the afternoon and evening as usual.
Low temperatures will stay constant: lows in the upper-70s and highs in the upper-80s.
