Brunch outside on Mother’s Day?

If you stay off the boat on Sunday, you and mom should be fine, albeit a little steamy.

Mother’s Day Forecast

Miami’s National Weather Service warns of a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms on Sunday with a high of 90 degrees.

A weak cold front is approaching South Florida, but relief – temperatures around 83 instead of 90 – won’t be felt until Monday and Tuesday. Before that, the frontal border could bring heavy storms on Saturday with hail up to the size of quarters and wind gusts exceeding 55 mph, the weather service said in a dangerous weather outlook. Saturday’s storm risk is 40%.

There is no current weather warning for the Florida Keys, however, and the chance of rain is up to 30% Saturday night. There’s only a slim chance of soaking Mother’s Day on Sunday.

So why did we suggest that a lot in Miami-Dade and Broward might be your best brunch option?

Meteorologists say the front, weak as it is, could deteriorate sea and beach conditions this weekend through early next week as winds from the north and northeast whip the waters. This will bring a high risk of rip currents along the east coast and high seas. The rockin’ and rollin’ could topple the mimosas on the deck of the boat.

Miami Beach Waterspout

Meanwhile, on Friday morning, Miami Beach early risers saw a waterspout. WPLG Local 10 meteorologist Brandon Orr shared a video on Twitter of bruised clouds and their tails along the horizon line in the foreground. But the spout was from an offshore shower and didn’t land.
