Has Summer Arrived In South Florida?


It seems like summer in South Florida on Monday, and the warmth will stick around this week.  After some patchy early fog along the Gulf coast and well inland, Monday features plenty of sun and a few clouds.  Watch out for an elevated risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid 80s.


Tuesday will bring good sun and a few clouds.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

A front will fizzle out on Wednesday before it reaches our area, so look for a mix of sun and clouds with just the possibility of a stray shower on the breeze.  Wednesday’s highs will be mostly in the low 80s.

Plenty of sun and clouds at times are in the forecast for Thursday.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

Friday will feature good sun and a few clouds.  Highs on Friday will be mostly in the mid 80s.
