Tropical moisture lingering around will lead to increased chances of rain on Saturday. Rather than widespread rain, as we saw throughout this week, the weather forecast called for more scattered showers and storms throughout the day.

“Already oversaturated spots, especially those in low-lying, flood-prone areas, could see localized flooding in pockets where those showers come down,” added The Weather Authority Meteorologist Lauren Kreidler.

Temperatures will warm up into the upper 80s under mostly cloudy skies.

In time for Father’s Day, high pressure will build to the north, leading to slightly lower rain chances for Sunday’s weather.

“Isolated storms are in the forecast due to all of the tropical moisture; however, the high pressure and pattern change will help to lower those rain chances some,” explained Kreidler.

More tropical moisture could usher in by the latter half of next week, increasing rain chances again. Overall, temperatures will be near average in the low 90s with clouds and sun.

It’s not the best boating day, as there’s a possibility of encountering showers and storms on the water. There is a light chop in the bay and Gulf, with waves ranging from one to two feet.


As for the tropics, we are watching one area in the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico with a medium 50% chance of development. Regardless of development, it is moving west away from Florida.
