Another Stormy Day in South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 15, 2015 – South Florida will see another stormy day on Wednesday.  After a few early showers in spots, look for sweltering highs in the low to mid 90s, followed by more afternoon storms on a southwesterly wind.  These mostly slow-moving storms will feature periods of heavy downpours (and localized flooding), dangerous lightning, and gusty winds.

The stormy pattern will continue on Thursday and Friday, after temperatures top out in the humid low 90s.  The weekend will bring a return to a more typical summer pattern of scattered afternoon storms, especially inland, and highs in the low 90s.
