By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Aug 5, 2015 – South Florida will see some afternoon storms on Wednesday before our rain chances drop again. After a few morning showers in spots, look for building clouds, highs in the sticky low 90s, and storms forming mostly inland in the afternoon. Some of these storms will work their way into the metro area, and periods of locally heavy rain are possible. Some showers will linger Wednesday night before a layer of Saharan dust works its way in from the Bahamas.
That sets the stage for hazy skies, lower rain chances, and highs in the low to mid 90s on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The atmosphere moistens on Sunday, and a few afternoon storms are in the forecast. Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s. The first part of the workweek will feature increasing rain chances, afternoon storms, and highs in the low 90s.
That low which brought so much rain to Florida is now centered over the North Carolina coast, with most of the thunderstorm activity associated with it in Atlantic waters. The low will merge with a front later today or Thursday, and the National Hurricane Center gives it virtually no chance of developing into a depression.
