- Now, CBS 4 weather with chief meteorologist Craig Setzer.
CRAIG SETZER: Well, the radar's still active this afternoon. Some showers out there. We had thunderstorms earlier trying to move through the area. Heaviest activity has moved offshore. And most of the rain, looks like, it is going to be over the Keys this evening, the Lower Keys. And most of that so far light. And it's good news, the heaviest storms have dropped onto the south, heading towards Havana and northern Cuba there. In terms of Miami-Dade and Broward, the heaviest activities moved offshore. We could still see a little shower, maybe even a stray storm pop up as we go through the evening. But then overnight should be mostly quiet.
Here's our Keys camera, and there are the raindrops on the lens. And yeah, there's not going to be much of a sunset this evening. I was going to say that's one of the sunset cruises heading in, but I think that's just a sailboat coming in. But not going to be the best of sunsets this evening in the Lower Keys, I'm sorry to say. Elsewhere, kind of a mixed sunset here or there.
80 in Miami. 81, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood. 76, rain cooled in Key West. Six on the stickiness scale, quite humid. The humidities are going to come down tomorrow some, so that's at least something to look forward to. Feels like 84 right now, and a west-northwest wind at 10, and 13/100s of an inch of rain at MIA. Elsewhere, rainfall amounts pretty light. A few spots in Broward picking up about 1/3 of an inch, 1/4 of an inch. Miami-Dade also between about 5/100 inch to almost 1/4 of an inch coming in from Homestead. But except for a few spots, the rain not that heavy today, and that's not a bad thing.
High temperatures made it into the upper 80s once again. Tomorrow, we're going to drop off a few degrees, in the low to mid-80s for highs as well on Friday. And temperatures come back up just in time for the weekend. Temperatures right now in the 70s to the mid to upper 80s across the area. There's the breeze out of the west, that's our typical warm air direction. But our winds are going to shift to the northeast tomorrow, and that's going to help the temperatures come down a bit.
There's the satellite loop showing this thick moisture draped across Central and South Florida. It has been sliding to the south. It's going to go a little bit more to the south before it pauses. So still a little bit of a rain chance tomorrow, especially over the Keys and Miami-Dade, just in the form of showers. Friday looking good. Saturday, a chance for some storms, mainly north of us. And late in the day, and Sunday as well, a chance for mainly afternoon and evening storms. Looks pretty hot by Sunday.
Tonight, a few storms still possible early. Other than that, quiet overnight. A low temperature in the upper 60s. Tomorrow, sun and clouds, a few showers popping up, mainly in the afternoon. High temperature in the mid-80s, but it'll feel a little bit less humid. North-northeast winds on the water, 10 to 15. Seas running two to four feet. Light chop on the bays. And through the weekend, looking like a brief break in the warmth and humidity until the weekend, when it warms back up. Also looking unsettled. Back to you.
