Dry Afternoon

Dry AfternoonSouth Florida is still locked in a pattern of early rain on Tuesday, but the afternoon should be mostly dry. After some overnight storms, Tuesday will bring passing showers and storms from mid-morning into lunchtime. Then we’ll see sun and clouds, with the bulk of the storms pushed well inland by the sea breeze. Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s.
