Florida Will Be Hot And Hazy Today

Wednesday features hot sun and hazy skies as Saharan dust filters into South Florida.  A few showers are still possible near the Atlantic coast late in the afternoon.  But the real story will be the heat advisory in place for the Gulf coast and interior as conditions will be a potential health hazard.  HIghs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter, so all of us need to stay hydrated.

Far to our north, what was briefly Tropical Storm Dolly is now a depression and is expected to become a remnant low on Wednesday.  At 5 am Wednesday, Tropical Depression Dolly was about 450 miles southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and was moving northeast at 12 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour.  This system is forecast to dissipate over cold waters on Thursday.
