Hot With Afternoon Storms Possible

South Florida will be hot with afternoon storms on Saturday, but we will get a bit of a break from our recent flooding rains.  Saturday features good sun and clouds at times, with showers and storms developing by mid afternoon.  Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter.

Sunday will be mostly sunny with a few afternoon showers and storms.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for sun, clouds, and a higher chance of showers and storms on Monday.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Tuesday will feature a mix of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms, with the western parts of the area seeing most of the action.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday’s forecast includes plenty of clouds and showers, with storms at times.  Highs on Wednesday will be near 90 degrees.

In the tropics, we’re keeping an eye on a disorganized area of showers and storms in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.  They’re associated with a front that’s been bringing lots of rain to central Florida.  The National Hurricane Center.gives this feature a low chance of developing into a depression once it exits Florida and makes it to the Atlantic off the southeast U.S. coast.
