Heavy Rain Possible For Florida Tuesday; Watching The Tropics

Tuesday features plenty of sun to start along the Gulf coast, while the east coast metro area will see sun, clouds, and a few morning showers.  Then showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and last into the evening — a pattern we’ll continue to see for the rest of the week.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s — but it will feel about 10 degrees hotter.

Wednesday will bring sun, clouds, and the chance of a storm in the morning.  The afternoon and evening will see lots of showers, with heavy rain at times.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s in the east coast metro area and near 90 degrees along the Gulf coast.

Thursday will feature sun, clouds, and a few storms in the morning.  Look for lots of showers, possibly a storm in spots, and periods of heavy rain in the afternoon and evening.  Localized flooding is possible.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday will be rainy, with some storms in the morning and lots of showers from the mid-afternoon into the evening.  Localized flooding is possible.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Saturday’s forecast calls for a mix of sun, clouds, and periods of showers.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the low 90s along the Gulf coast.

In the tropics, the wave we’ve been watching is making its way through the eastern Atlantic.  The National Hurricane Center gives this wave a low chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.
