Coast Showers

South Florida will have a weather “split personality” on Monday, with east coast showers and storms and more sun than rain along the Gulf coast. After a warm start, Monday features a mix of sun and clouds, but showers and storms will be move along the east coast metro areas from late morning through the afternoon hours. But it’s not a beach day along the Gulf coast, with the Red Tide bloom continuing to affect local beaches. Highs on Monday will be in the mid 80s along the east coast and a bit warmer elsewhere.

Tuesday will bring a few early showers and morning lows in the low 70s. Then the day will see sun, clouds, and maybe a stray shower on a steamy day. Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday. Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

Thursday will bring more showers along with sun and clouds. Thursday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.

Friday’s forecast includes showers, clouds, and some sun. Highs on Friday will be in the mid 80s.
