Hazy and Hot Week

­­­­­­­­By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 6, 2015 – South Florida will be hazy and hot on Monday and throughout the workweek.  After a few early morning showers on Monday, look for hazy skies, highs in the low 90s (but feeling hotter), and the possibility that a few storms developing well inland in the afternoon could drift eastward to the western part of the metro area by late afternoon.

Our easterly winds will bring a few morning showers each day from Tuesday to the weekend, but an unusually thick layer of Saharan dust will decrease the chances of thunderstorm development over our area.  So look for the haze and highs in the low 90s to be in place through Friday.
