Breezy With Passing Showers, Watching The Tropics

South Florida will see summertime showers and storms on Saturday as a strong ocean breeze sets up our weather pattern.  Saturday features sun, clouds, and  passing showers along the east coast, while afternoon storms and showers are the story along the Gulf coast.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents will be in place along the Atlantic beaches on Saturday and Sunday, while the Gulf coast beaches continue to deal with algae blooms and red tide.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees.
Look for another day of quick east coast showers and late-day storms to the west on Sunday.  Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees right along the east coast and in the low 90s elsewhere.
Monday will bring another round of east coast showers and afternoon storms and showers in the interior and along the Gulf coast.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Tuesday will bring sun, clouds, and sporadic showers and storms throughout South Florida.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Wednesday’s forecast includes sun, clouds, and periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s.
In the tropics, a non-tropical low in the center of the Atlantic (about 700 miles west of the Azores) is generating strong winds.  The National Hurricane Center gives it a low chance of developing into a tropical depression as it moves to the southwest during the next 5 days.
