Much of South Florida already has seen rain and clouds today, the result of a tropical disturbance in the Florida Straits. Although the disturbance has diminished, there still could more showers this afternoon.

South Florida's Wednesday forecast otherwise calls for partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 80, overnight lows in the upper 70s and a 40 percent chance of rain.

Central Florida's forecast: Mostly sunny with highs in the low 90s, lows in the mid 70s and a 20 percent chance of showers and storms.

Labor Day currents: Insights from Jim Lushine, our resident weather expert:

Ten years ago on Labor Day, Sept. 1, 2003, three people drowned in rip currents along South Florida beaches. Two of the deaths occurred in Palm Beach County and the third at a Broward beach.

Fortunately, this year surf conditions will be benign with no risk of dangerous rip currents.
