Dry And Hot Wednesday (UPDATED)

  South Florida will be mostly dry and hot on Wednesday as we enjoy a few days with low rain chances.  Wednesday features good sun and some clouds at times.  Rip currents will be a growing problem at the Atlantic beaches, reaching moderate levels by late Wednesday and high levels on Thursday and into the holiday weekend.  Highs on Wednesday will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Thursday will be another day of blue skies and good sun.  Thursday’s highs will range from the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s elsewhere.

Look for plenty of sun and a few clouds on the ocean breeze on Friday.  Friday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Saturday will feature good sun and a few clouds on the breeze.  Saturday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Sunday will be another day of blue skies with lots of sun.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.

As expected, Andrea didn’t last long.  The subtropical system was downgraded to a depression late Tuesday morning and became a remnant low in the western Atlantic late in the afternoon.  Let’s hope all our tropical activity is so benign — but we have to get ready for the hurricane season and whatever it brings.
