Afternoon Storms

South Florida can’t shake those afternoon storms when it’s rainy season, and we’ll see more of them on Monday.  After a mostly dry start, Monday features hot sun and building clouds, with showers and storms popping up by midday in the east coast metro areas and working their way inland.  Storms will develop along the Gulf coast by late afternoon.  We could see some strong storms, with periods of heavy rain, dangerous lightning, and gusty winds.  Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s.

Tuesday will bring sun, clouds, and afternoon storms again.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Wednesday will feature sun, clouds, and passing showers, but afternoon storm coverage won’t be as widespread.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Thursday’s forecast includes sun, clouds, passing showers, and a few (mostly inland) storms.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Look for more of the same on Friday — sun, clouds, showers in spots, and mostly inland afternoon storms.  Highs on Friday will be near 90 degrees.
