HOT And Muggy Today, Relief On Its Way

muggy today

muggy todaySouth Florida will be hot and muggy today, but there is relief down the road. After a warm start on Tuesday, look for a mix of sun and clouds, along with a few quick showers on the breeze. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 80s in most locations, and we could see a 90 degree reading or two on the map.

Wednesday will be another day of near record-breaking heat, with highs in the upper 80s again (and higher readings possible inland). Look for some passing showers in spots (especially in Miami-Dade and the Keys) on a muggy day with a mix of sun and clouds.

A front approaches on Thursday, but first we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds. More clouds will build in the afternoon, and showers (and a storm or two) will move in with the front.

A few early showers could linger on Friday as morning lows drop into the 60s. Then skies will begin to clear later on Friday as drier air moves in. Friday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 70s — below average for early April.

After a cool morning with lows in the 50s, Saturday features plenty of sun and a few clouds on a day that will be noticeably drier (and also poses a threat for brush fires). Saturday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.
