It’s been a stormy weekend in South Florida. And don’t expect the rain to stop anytime soon.
The heavy storms are expected to continue throughout Monday, with rain chances slowly dropping from 40 percent to about 20 percent by the end of the week. There will still be a chance of lightning and gusty winds reaching up to 18 mph on Wednesday.
“As we get into Tuesday...some dry air is going to move in and that’s going to limit the potential rainfall,” Maria Torres, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said. “You’re still going to have chances of rain. It’s just going to be isolated showers.”
Rip currents are also expected near the middle of the week.
On Sunday, thunderstorms soaked South Florida. The storms brought lightning, heavy rainfall and gusty wind. No damage was reported.
With the rain comes slightly lower temperatures, with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the high-70s for the entire week.
