Clouds and Storms Around South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 25, 2015 – 
South Florida will be cloudy and sometimes stormy this weekend. After a mostly dry start on Saturday, look for plenty of clouds, showers and storms, and highs around 90 degrees. While the heaviest rain is likely to be to our west and north, downpours are possible from some of the storms that will pass over South Florida.

Sunday will be stormy as well, and periods of heavy rain are possible in some locations. Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Our stormy pattern continues into Monday, with a gradual shift to a more typical summertime pattern of late afternoon storms on the sea breeze by mid week. Look for highs in the low 90s during the first half of the workweek.
The National Hurricane Center is watching an area of disturbed weather between the U.S. southeast coast and Bermuda. This feature has a low chance of becoming a tropical or subtropical depression over the next 5 days as it moves generally northeastward.
