Weekend weather in a word: Wet

Keep the rain gear handy through the weekend and into next week.

The soaking rains that drenched most of South Florida Thursday afternoon and evening largely subsided during the overnight hours. Early Friday, however, there was still light to moderate showers — which could make for a slippery commute in some places.

There’s a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday, according to the National Weather Service. When it’s not raining it will be warm and cloudy. The high temperature will be approaching 90.

The 50 percent rain chance stays in the forecast throughout the weekend and into next week.

The moisture remains in the atmosphere all week — making rain possible at almost any time.

It’s still early in the Atlantic Hurricane Season, which officially began June 1. The tropics were currently quiet, with nothing expected to develop over the next five days.
