South Florida will see some sun and some storms on Tuesday. After a few early east coast and Keys showers, look for sun and clouds followed by afternoon storms forming along the east coast sea breeze. Most of the storms will remain over the western suburbs of Miami-Dade and Broward and then move into the interior, with just the chance of a storm developing along the Gulf coast. Tuesday’s highs will be in the sticky low 90s.
We’ll be back to a pattern of ocean breezes and afternoon storms on Thursday, with most of the activity developing over the far western suburbs of Miami-Dade and Broward and moving into the interior and the Gulf coast. Highs will be around 90 degrees on Thursday.
Friday will be similar, with highs around 90 degrees and afternoon storms developing over the interior and along the Gulf coast. Look for a few early east coast showers, highs in the low 90s, and afternoon storms mostly in the interior on Saturday.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Karl is still struggling with wind shear and dry air but should begin to strengthen over the next day or so. At 5 am Tuesday, Karl was located near 20.2 North, 52.8 West, and was moving west-northwest at 17 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were estimated at 40 miles per hour. Karl is forecast to turn to the northwest and then northeast as it makes its closest approach to Bermuda early this weekend. In the eastern Atlantic, the wave we’ve been watching is now Tropical Depression # 13. At 5 am Tuesday, it was located near 14.4 North, 29.6 West, and was moving west-northwest at 9 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds in TD # 13 were 35 miles per hour. It is forecast to reach tropical storm strength in a day or so but remain away from land in the central Atlantic.
