Hot Sun And Afternoon Storms Today

hot sun
It’s August in South Florida, so expect the typical hot sun and afternoon storms on Monday.  After a few early showers in the Keys, Monday features sun and clouds in the morning, with showers and storms developing in the afternoon, especially inland.  Some storms could be strong, with dangerous lightning, gusty winds, periods of heavy rain, and possibly small hail.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.
Tuesday will see sun and clouds to start, followed by showers and storms in the afternoon, with greatest coverage along the Gulf coast and in the interior.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Saharan dust moves in on Wednesday, so look for hazy skies and isolated storms, mostly in western locations. Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Thursday will feature hot sun, hazy skies, and just the chance of a stray storm in spots.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
The dust will hang around on Friday, so look for another day of hazy skies and hot sun, with maybe an isolated storm.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.
In the tropics, the non-tropical low about 500 miles south of Newfoundland has a low chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression by the end of the workweek.
