Holiday Sun And Storms For Florida

Memorial Day starts with some hazy smoke in portions of Broward and northern Miami-Dade from a major wildfire near the Palm Beach County line.  A building breeze in the east coast metro area will clear out the smoke later in the morning.  Look for sea breezes during the afternoon, and some storms will develop along with them.  These storms will bring dangerous lightning and periods of heavy rain.  Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s in the east coast metro area and the low 90s along the Gulf coast.
