It will be a slippery Tuesday commute: This is the dry season?

Even if it’s not raining when you head out this morning, expect wet roads and some possible ponding for the early Tuesday commute. The overnight hours saw a number of showers and thunderstorms crossing over South Florida leaving wet and slippery conditions behind.

You would hardly know it’s officially the dry season, but conditions will start drying out a little today .

According to the National Weather Service, a rain chance of about 50 percent is in the forecast Tuesday. Otherwise it will be partly sunny with a high approaching the mid 80s. Winds will be out of the east at about 10 mph.

It will be a little on Wednesday before the rain chance ticks up a bit for Thanksgiving Day. And remember, this is the dry season.

Traveling for Thanksgiving?

Retired NWS meteorologist Jim Lushine says conditions will improve for your trip home: Traveling to Florida’s Thanksgiving destinations, including the Orlando theme parks, looks wet. However, the trip home this weekend should be dry. In contrast, most of the remainder of the U.S. should have relatively dry conditions all week except for some rain in New England and in the Pacific northwest and some snow flurries near the Great Lakes.
