Sunday will start with a mix of sun and clouds.  Then look for periods of showers and storms in the afternoon and evening.  Some of those storms could be strong, with heavy rain, damaging winds, and lightning.  Sunday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and in the mid-80s along the Gulf coast.

Forecasting weather(wx) isn’t easy! There’s a lot of information/data that we (NWS Miami) look at in order to forecast.
Fun fact: It’s 72 degrees outside. It’s 68 degrees INSIDE at our office. Apparently, we can forecast outside wx but can’t forecast inside wx. Should’ve brought our jackets!

Monday will see lingering showers and a few storms in the morning, especially in the east coast metro area.  We’ll also see good sun along the Gulf coast and a mix of sun and clouds and a gusty breeze in the east coast metro area.  Monday’s highs will be in the mid-80s.

The start of Atlantic hurricane season is less than two months away, and we’re seeing the first version of the seasonal forecast from Colorado State University.  It calls for above average activity — 17 named storms and 8 hurricanes, with 4 of the hurricanes predicted to be category 3 or above.  It’s not close to 2020’s incredible 30 named storms.  But it is a reminder that we need to be prepared this year — and every year.
