Thursday will bring a mix of sun and clouds with an increasing chance of storms as the day progresses.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Friday will feature sun and clouds with storms at times, especially in the afternoon.  Look for breezy conditions in the east coast metro area.  Friday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Saturday will be breezy again in the east coast metro area.  All of South Florida will see a mix of sun and clouds in the morning and periods of showers and storms in the afternoon.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

Sunday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and afternoon showers and storms.  Breezy conditions will continue near the Atlantic coast.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

In the tropics, Potential Tropical Cyclone # 2 is approaching coastal Colombia.    Tropical storm warnings are in effect there and also for Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao.  Potential TC # 2 (likely to become Tropical Storm Bonnie on Wednesday) is forecast to reach the Central American coast on Friday — possibly as a hurricane.

 

Elsewhere, the area of showers and storms in the northern Gulf of Mexico has a medium chance of developing before it reaches the Texas coast on Wednesday or early Thursday.  Its biggest threat will be heavy rain.  And the wave in the central Caribbean has a low chance of becoming a depression during the next five days as it moves to the west-northwestward, in the direction of the Leeward Islands.
