Hazy and Very Hot Friday for South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Aug 7, 2015 – South Florida will be hazy and very hot on Friday. While a passing storm is possible, mostly well inland, the day features hot sun and sweltering heat, with highs reaching the mid 90s (and feeling well over 100).

The weekend will be even hotter, with highs in the mid 90s and some locations even reaching the upper 90s.

More moisture returns on Monday, and we’ll see a few early showers, highs in the low 90s, and some afternoon storms.

Afternoon storm chances will increase on Tuesday and Wednesday, as highs again hit the low 90s.
