Clouds and Some Storms Remain in South Florida Forecast

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Aug 2, 2015 – South Florida will be cloudy on Sunday, and storms will develop mostly inland this afternoon. After a quiet morning, look for storms to form west of the metro area, but some could move into the western suburbs and points eastward. While cloud cover could limit storm formation, those areas that see breaks in the clouds will see heavy rain and gusty winds. Sunday’s highs be near the 90 degree mark.

We’ll see a few morning showers, highs in the low 90s, and some (mainly inland) afternoon storms on Monday, and that pattern will continue through Wednesday.

In the tropics, the low we’ve been watching in the central Atlantic has moved into an environment that’s unfavorable for development, and the National Hurricane Center says tropical cyclone development throughout the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean is not expected for the next couple of days.
