Weather conditions a bit unsettled this holiday week

Although South Florida’s weather is somewhat unsettled this week, consider this: there is no warmer place in the country right now.

Because of a front that is passing through, it will be a mix of sun and clouds for most of the week. A shower could ride in on the breeze at almost any time.

According to the National Weather Service, there’s about a 40 percent chance of showers on Monday. Temperatures will be comfortable — with a high of about 79. It will be breezy, too, with winds from the northeast at 11 to 16 mph, gusting to about 22 mph.

There is a moderate risk of rip currents at all area beaches.

Some insight to this week’s weather from retired NWS meteorologist Jim Lushine: The cold front that is over South Florida will change to a warm front Tuesday bringing back a better chance for showers and maybe even a thunderstorm. There will also be a good chance of rain on Thanksgiving Day itself.

Conditions improve into the weekend when the rain chance diminishes substantially.
