Hit-or-Miss Showers and Storms

hit-or-miss showers

hit-or-miss showersSouth Florida will see hit-or-miss showers and storms on Thursday, thanks to a weak wave passing through. Look for early showers on the east coast and in the Keys, followed by sun, building clouds, and some afternoon storms, with most of the activity in the interior and along the Gulf coast. Highs on Thursday will be mostly in the low 90s.

hit-or-miss showersFriday will finally see the return of our usual summer pattern of scattered afternoon storms. The day features some early showers, especially along the Atlantic coast, sun and clouds, and afternoon storms in spots, with most of the activity inland and in the Naples area. Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

On Saturday, a few early showers will blow in on the ocean breeze, and Atlantic beaches will see an increasing risk of dangerous rip currents through the weekend. A few storms will develop, mostly inland and in the Naples area, on Saturday afternoon, and western portions of Miami-Dade and Broward could see one pop up as well.

Sunday will feature the same pattern — early showers, breezes along the Atlantic coast (and the risk of rip currents at its beaches), scattered afternoon storms concentrated well inland and along the Gulf coast, and highs mostly in the low 90s.

Faith Based Events

Monday will be breezy in Miami-Dade and Broward, with a few early showers, the chance of an afternoon storm, and the risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches. Once again, afternoon storms will be more likely in the interior and in the Naples area. Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

The area of disturbed weather that brought so much rain to portions of north and central Florida is slowly shifting westward. It is not expected to develop.
