Strong weekend storms possible with cool front

The National Weather Service is warning of the potential for strong to severe storms this weekend as a cold front approaches South Florida.

While scattered showers are possible for Saturday, Sunday has the highest chances for robust thunderstorms with small hail and lightning beginning in the afternoon through evening. Isolated tornadoes are also possible.

“The primary potential impacts for Sunday looks like damaging winds,” meteorologists wrote in a forecast discussion. “However, hail and even some tornadoes cannot be ruled out over South Florida for Sunday.”

As of late Thursday, the Storm Prediction Center has Florida with a 15 percent chance of severe weather on Sunday, but that will be updated today.

The cool front should bring temperatures closer to normal early next week.

The normal high temperature for this time of year is 82 degrees, with an overnight low of 66.

While a 70 percent chance of rain is forecast for Sunday, rain accumulation may not be very high. The Weather Prediction Center has about an inch of rain falling through Wednesday.

This map is valid for 8 p.m. Saturday.
