The week started out wet.
Forecaster pegged a 90 percent chance of rain on South Florida for Monday. The rain, accompanied by thunder and lightning jolted some from bed before 4 a.m. and stretched into the morning and afternoon rush hours.
“Wet and messy,” said Lissette Gonzalez, CBS4 meteorologist. “It is wet all across the board” in Broward, Miami-Dade and the Keys.
The rain turned on and off throughout Monday caused by a surge of moisture coming from the Gulf of Mexico, she said.
Never miss a local story.
But there’s good news beyond the clouds.
Tuesday is shaping up to be sunny and warm, according to the National Weather Service, with highs around 80 and lows around 70. Wednesday and Thursday will be mostly sunny and warm, too. Lows could dip into the 60s in some of the far-reaching suburbs.
But late Thursday and early Friday look soggy again, with a 40 percent chance of rain and a stiff breeze.
“We’ve started the week with rain,” said weather service meteorologist Arlena Moses, “and we’ll end the week with rain.”
