Tropical Wave Soaking Florida

A tropical wave brought widespread rainfall to South Florida Sunday. Moisture will continue to spread across central Florida through Monday.
Numerous showers and thunderstorms will spread from the Florida Keys, Miami and Fort Lauderdale into the Tampa Bay into Monday. Showers and thunderstorms associated with the tropical wave expanded Saturday night into Sunday. Despite the tropical downpours, the possibility that this wave becomes a tropical depression remains low early this week.
Over the past 48 hours, numerous locations have received 2 to as much as 4 inches of rain from the tropical wave. Drier conditions are expected once again by Tuesday.
Another relatively dry stretch of weather will then follow for the rest of the upcoming week. Saharan dust should also return, leading to hazy skies and more vibrant sunrises and sunsets.
