August Heat, Showers, Storms

August heat showers

South Florida’s Tuesday will be all about our typical August heat, showers, and storms.  The day features sun and clouds to start, with showers and storms developing mostly in the afternoon.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel well over 100 degrees.

Wednesday will bring a mix of sun, clouds, showers, and some storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will be yet another day of sun, humidity, clouds, showers, and storms.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for fewer showers and storms and more sun on Friday.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s again.

Rain chances go up on Saturday, but we’ll also see periods of sun.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees.

The tropical Atlantic is still quiet.
