South Florida is hot with a stray shower in spots on Sunday as we watch Tropical Storm Maria (just a part of the ridiculously busy tropics). Our Sunday features a mix of sun and clouds, and we’ll see a quick shower on the ocean breeze, especially at the cost. A high risk of rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches on Sunday, and rip currents will be a problem into the workweek. Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Monday will bring a few early showers, a mix of sun and clouds, and maybe a stray afternoon storm. Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Tuesday will be another relatively dry day, with sun, clouds, and maybe a storm in spots. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Moisture will start to work its way in on Wednesday, so a few showers and storms are in the forecast. Highs on Wednesday will near 90 degrees.
Look for some morning showers, sun and clouds, and some afternoon storms forming along the sea breeze on Thursday. Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
In the tropics, we’re keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Maria, which is threatening the Lesser Antilles. At 5 am Sunday, Maria was located near 13.0 North, 54.9 West, and was moving west-northwest at 15 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour, but Maria is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane later on Sunday. Maria’s future track depends in part on how long Hurricane Jose lingers off the New England coast.
We also have Tropical Storm Lee, but it is forecast to remain in the far Atlantic. For completeness, at 5 am Sunday, Lee was located near 13.0 North, 35.4 West, and was moving west at 7 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour.
