A surface high pressure system sitting near Bermuda is to thank for what will become mostly sunny skies by Wednesday and daytime temperatures that climb to 83 degrees.  Overnight lows are expected be near 70 degrees.

The normal high temperature for this time of year is 78 degrees, the normal low is 63 degrees.

National Weather Service forecasters said the high will block any cold fronts from moving through South Florida for the time being and keep the persistent blustery east winds going for at least another day.

Rain chances remain low through the week, although tick up slightly to 30 percent Sunday.

Forecasters aren’t ruling out a coastal shower or two as the east winds blow in moisture off the Atlantic. Tonight, a 20 percent chance of rain may still give you a chance to see the space station flyover visible from Palm Beach County at 5:56. Look to the southwest where the station will appear and be visible for five minutes.

A high risk of rip current alert was issued this morning for Palm Beach County beaches. This is expected to last at least through Wednesday as the southeast winds remain persistent. It could drop to a  moderate risk of rip currents Wednesday.
