Forecast: Hot Days Ahead To Get Hotter

Hot Days Ahead

South Florida will be downright hot on Sunday and for the next several days as our rain chances drop off. Look for some quick early showers on Sunday, followed by afternoon storms well inland and on the Gulf coast, and highs in the muggy low 90s.

Hot Days AheadOur 4th of July holiday features drier conditions, thanks to some Saharan dust moving in early in the week. The Independence Day forecast includes a few early showers, maybe a stray inland storm early in the afternoon, and highs in the sweltering low to mid 90s (but it will feel about 10 degrees hotter). Any possible evening sprinkles shouldn’t affect the fireworks displays.

We’ll see even hotter weather on Wednesday and Thursday, with highs in the low to mid 90s. A few passing showers and maybe an isolated storm are possible both days.

Friday will bring a few showers, maybe a storm, and highs in the low 90s.
