MIAMI - Miami on Friday tied the high temperature record for this day that had stood for over 60 years but the moisture rich air also brought rain and the formation of at least one funnel cloud.

A CBS News Miami sent this photo of a funnel cloud in Hialeah that was taken Friday. Special

As of 2 p.m., the high temperature at Miami International Airport topped out at 93 degrees, matching a record that was set in 1958.

But some areas in South Florida saw showers because of a lingering air mass linked to persistent showers in the region.

"It got very hot," CBS News Miami meteorologist Cindy Preszler said. "Then we had a little shower along the sea breeze and an updraft formed in Hialeah that was very visible." 

The wet and unsettled weather pattern is expected to continue through the weekend due to deep tropical moisture remaining in place.

Friday scattered storms will be possible. There was a Level 1 threat of excessive rainfall for parts of South Florida, including most of Broward, due to the potential for some heavy downpours and localized flooding.

Friday afternoon NEXT Weather

A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect through Sunday due to the higher than normal king tides and the potential for minor saltwater coastal flooding around high tide times.

After starting the day with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s, highs in the afternoon will climb to the upper 80s.

The rain chance stays high through Saturday and Sunday with the chance for scattered to numerous storms.

Drier air will move in NEXT Weather

Passing storms are possible on Monday but next week drier air moves in to lower rain chances Tuesday through midweek.
