AM East Coast Showers; PM West Coast Showers

South Florida will see typical summertime weather on Saturday, with showers and storms around.  Showers will move in to the east coast metro area in the morning, and a stray storm is possible along with the showers.  Then we’ll see some Gulf coast and interior showers and storms in the afternoon.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees at the coasts and the low 90s inland.
Sunday will bring some early east coast showers and afternoon showers and storms along the sea breezes.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Monday will be a bit drier, with sun and clouds and isolated afternoon showers and storms.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Look for a few early east coast showers on Tuesday, followed by sea breeze showers and storms in the afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
We’ll do it all again on Wednesday — sun and clouds to start, with afternoon showers and storms.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s.
In the tropics, the wave east of the Lesser Antilles that we’ve been watching is not expected to develop.  And Ernesto is now a post-tropical storm and is racing toward the British Isles, bringing heavy rain and gusty winds.
