Scattered thunderstorms, rain could dampen weekend events in South Florida

Thunderstorms and rain will be possible every afternoon across South Florida from Thursday to Monday, a potential obstacle for those planning to spend the weekend outside.

East coast metro areas currently have the greatest risk of thunderstorms through the weekend. The chances of rain each day are about 30-40%, according to the National Weather Service, higher in more northern areas like Palm Beach County.

Rain chances will increase over the weekend in Broward as a front passes through the area.

“Each afternoon won’t be a washout,” forecasters with the National Weather Service wrote in their Thursday briefing. “Expect scattered coverage at best.”

Still, weekend storms could put a damper on plans such as the Fort Lauderdale Air Show, set for both Saturday and Sunday on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

“We’re still forecasting showers and storms through the weekend, over the next couple days in Fort Lauderdale,” said Larry Kelly, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

Forecasters are predicting a 30% chance of thunderstorms in Fort Lauderdale during the day Saturday, increasing slightly to 40% Saturday night.

Sunday has the bleakest outlook, with wind, possible thunderstorms, and a 60% chance of showers during the day.

There is a limited risk of lightning across South Florida on both Saturday and Sunday.

Dry weather will return Monday as a cold front moves in.
