High winds and rain may continue into the weekend as a tropical disturbance is developing south of Cuba.

The storm system is moving northeastward, bringing possible rainfall near Sebastian as it passes Florida. 

“Some slow development of this system is possible during the next few days while it moves northeastward near western or central Cuba, the Straits of Florida and the Bahamas through the weekend. Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is possible over portions of Cuba, South Florida, and the Bahamas through early next week.”

National Hurricane Center

The tropical disturbance is currently producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms that extend near Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and Cuba.

There’s a 30 percent chance of development within the next five days.

The current weather forecast for Sebastian calls for rain Thursday and Friday with high winds. Highs near 84, overnight lows near 73 degrees.

The rain chance decreases for Saturday and Sunday, but it depends on what the tropical disturbance does over the weekend. 

High Surf Advisory

The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory starting Thursday night through Saturday morning.

The advisory was issued because of the distant storms in the Caribbean and Atlantic. An advisory means that the waves pose a threat to those onshore in Sebastian.
