Beach Plans a Bust in South Florida Sunday

South Florida residents woke up to a soggy Sunday morning.

A non-tropical disturbance with a tropical connection is to blame for the busted beach plans Sunday in much of central and south Florida.  A large area of clouds and steady rain will continue to move northwest across the peninsula. An upper-level area of low pressure has drifted into the Gulf of Mexico, inducing a strong southwest flow on its east side. This path of wind will draw tropical moisture into the southern half of the Sunshine State through Sunday night. Periods of rain, with some embedded heavier rain and thunder, should be expected in most areas through early Monday. Conditions will gradually improve Monday in South Florida, while the extensive cloud cover and blotchy rains move northwest into the Gulf.
