Afternoon Storms Return to South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 22, 2015 – Storms will return to South Florida Wednesday afternoon. Look for a few early passing showers, followed by hot sun, highs in the sweltering low to mid 90s, and storms developing by mid to late afternoon. Some storms could bring brief periods of heavy downpours.

Thursday will be another hot day, with highs in the low to mid 90s, with afternoon storms. Rain chances will increase on Friday, with more areas seeing afternoon storms move through. Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

The weekend will bring more clouds and higher storm chances in the afternoon. But computer models are backing off on how much moisture will be over South Florida, so rain totals may not bring much relief to our drought.

We will see elevated chances for afternoon storms on Monday and Tuesday. Look for highs around 90 degrees during the weekend, with slightly higher temperatures during the first half of the new workweek.
