Heavy rains likely this week

It’s looking less likely that the tropical wave in the Caribbean will develop into a depression or storm, forecasters said.

In tandem with a weaker wave to its west, it should boost the chance of afternoon storms over the next few days. The National Weather Service in Miami now puts the rain chance at 60 percent Tuesday through Thursday.

“The biggest threat will just be heavy, heavy rainfall and minor street flooding,” said meteorologist Andy Tingler.

Tuesday’s forecast otherwise calls for high temperatures in the low 90s and lows in the upper 70s.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami-Dade County said strong upper level winds likely will keep the wave from strengthening over the next couple days.

Nonetheless, it continues to give the wave a low chance of development.
