Hot and Sticky Weekend

­­­­­­­­By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 10, 2015 – South Florida’s stretch of hot and sticky weather continues this weekend, but some changes are coming next week.  After a few early showers on Friday, look for plenty of sun and highs in the low 90s (but feeling several degrees hotter).

A few morning showers are in the forecast this weekend, but both Saturday and Sunday will be mostly rain-free with highs in the sweltering low 90s.

The pattern continues on Monday, but chances of afternoon storms increase on Tuesday and Wednesday, while highs will again reach the low 90s.
