Passing Daytime Showers Will Clear For Tonight’s Fireworks; Watching The Tropics

Daytime Showers

Daytime ShowersSouth Florida’s Fourth of July will see some daytime showers, but the evening should be fine for watching fireworks displays. After another very warm start, Tuesday will bring a mix of sun and clouds along with passing showers, especially in the morning and early afternoon. An ocean breeze will keep most of the storm activity well inland (but a stray storm could pop up in the western suburbs). It will also keep a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents in place at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Tuesday will be in the sweltering low 90s — and feeling hotter.

Wednesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds, a moderate risk of rip currents at the Atlantic beaches, and some passing showers with maybe a stray storm well inland. Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will bring a mix of sun and clouds, a few showers, and a few afternoon storms. Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

Look for some early showers on Friday, followed by afternoon storms. Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Saturday’s forecast includes early showers, sun and clouds, and afternoon storms. Highs on Saturday will be in the sticky low 90s.

Daytime ShowersIn the tropics, the wave in the central Atlantic now has a high chance of developing into a depression during the next day or so. It will begin moving west-northwestward, and we’ll keep an eye on it.
