Hot Start For The Weekend And Hurricane Season

hot start
June in South Florida is off to a hot start on Friday.  And June 1st is also the start of another Atlantic hurricane season.  Friday features a few early east coast showers, followed by a mix of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers, especially inland and along the Gulf coast.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 80s.
Saturday will bring hot sun, clouds at times, and a few late afternoon showers and storms along the sea breezes.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Sunday will feature more of the same — plenty of sun, some clouds, and a few afternoon showers and storms, mostly inland.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
We’ll do it all again on Monday, with sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms in spots.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
The pattern continues on Tuesday (and probably pretty much until October), with hot sun, some clouds, and a few of those late-day showers and storms.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s.
The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season is now under way, so it’s time to revisit your hurricane plan and check your supplies.  We can expect average to above average tropical cyclone activity this year.  But it’s not how many hurricanes there are but where they end up — as we learned once again in 2017 with Irma.  So the answer once again is:  be prepared.
