Very Hot And Hazy Again; Watching Two Storms

very hot

very hotSouth Florida will be very hot and still hazy on Saturday as Saharan dust lingers. After another very warm start, Saturday features hazy sun, a few clouds on the sea breeze, and a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches. Any afternoon storms should develop far to the west of the metro area. Highs on Saturday will be mostly in the mid 90s (just a bit cooler at the coast), so stay hydrated and avoid the sun from mid morning to late afternoon.

Sunday will see an early shower in spots and an afternoon storm or two as moisture returns. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Look for some early showers on Monday, followed by a mix of sun and clouds and a few afternoon storms developing along the sea breeze. Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Tuesday will bring more of the same — a few early showers, sun and clouds, and some afternoon storms. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday’s forecast includes a few showers, sun and clouds, and some afternoon storms as the sea breeze moves inland. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s again.

In the tropics, the wave in the eastern Atlantic has a high chance of developing into a depression during the next few days. Its projected path will put it near the Lesser Antilles by midweek, so we’ll keep a close eye on it. The wave in the Caribbean has a medium chance of developing if it can reach the southwestern Gulf of Mexico without serious interaction with the land surface of Central America.
