Florida Will Still Be Dangerously Hot Friday

Friday features dangerously hot sun, and a heat advisory is in place from noon to 6 pm for much of South Florida — the Gulf coast, the interior, and western portions of south Miami-Dade.  A few late afternoon storms could develop near the Gulf coast.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the beaches of Miami-Dade and Broward.  Highs on Friday will be in the mid 90s along the Gulf coast and interior, and the low to mid 90s in the east coast metro area.  But it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter — so stay hydrated and out of the sun.
