Weather alert: Wet and windy day for South Florida

If you’re taking an extra day off or visiting South Florida, you’ll want to rethink the beach plans.

And if you’re heading back to work, expect slick roads on the commute.

The region is in for a rainy and windy day, along with the risk of Atlantic riptides.

“Wet and windy,” CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez said on Facebook.

Rain chance for Tuesday is 60 percent with thunderstorms here and there, according to the National Weather Service. Winds could gust up to 30 mph.

A rip current hazard is in effect Tuesday through the week.

Swimming is “extremely dangerous” and “not recommended,” the weather service said in a statement.

A teen died on Monday after being pulled from the surf at John U. Lloyd Park in South Broward. Authorities said the current pulled the 15-year-old boy under the water.

Looking ahead, the rest of the week doesn’t look much better. Forecasters predict a 60 percent chance of rain and storms on Wednesday.
