Feels Like Summer Again

It feels like summer in South Florida on Friday and throughout the weekend.  After a warm start, Friday features plenty of hot sun and a few clouds, with just the chance of a stray east coast shower.  Highs on Friday will be mostly in the upper 80s — way too warm for mid-April.

Saturday won’t see any relief from the heat, as another day of sunny skies is on tap.  Saturday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

We’ll see more clouds and some passing showers on Sunday, but it will remain hot.  Watch for an elevated risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.  Sunday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Look for clouds, showers, and some sun on Monday.  Monday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.

Tuesday will feature mostly sunny skies.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 80s.
