Another Day Of Hot Sun, Showers And Steamy Temperatures; Watching The Tropics

hot sun

South Florida will see morning showers and a steamy hot afternoon on Monday. After yet another very warm morning with some showers moving through on the ocean breeze, Monday will bring hot sun and some clouds. The breeze will be strong enough to keep most of the afternoon storm activity well inland, and it also sets up a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s. The evening should be fine for Fourth of July fireworks.

Wednesday features a few more early showers, and we’ll see a greater chance of afternoon storms, especially in the western suburbs. Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds, followed by scattered afternoon storms on Thursday. Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

Friday will bring a sun-and-cloud mix with afternoon storms around. Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
