Saturday will feature a mix of sun, clouds, and periods of showers and storms.  Saturday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Sunday’s forecast includes good sun, clouds at times, and a few afternoon showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be in the mid 80s.

We’re also watching the tropics for an early start to the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.  An area of low pressure is expected to form northeast of the Bahamas late in the week or over the weekend.  The National Hurricane Center gives this feature a high chance of becoming a subtropical depression or subtropical storm during the next 5 days as it moves generally to the northeast.  The impact on South Florida will be higher rain chances, including some periods of heavy rainfall on Friday and Saturday.  But it is a reminder that June 1 is fast approaching — and it’s time to get ready for hurricane season.
