Hot With Late Day Storms

Sunday features plenty of hot sun, some clouds at times, and periods of storms in the afternoon and evening.  A heat advisory is in effect for Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Collier counties until Sunday evening.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents remains at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s right at the Atlantic coast and in the mid-90s elsewhere — but it will feel much hotter, so stay hydrated and out of the sun.

In the tropics, the wave in the central Atlantic is still poorly organized, but that’s expected to change soon.  The National Hurricane Center gives this wave a high chance of becoming a depression in a few days.  But computer models indicate it will track well to the east of the U.S. coast.  Elsewhere, the tropical Atlantic is quiet right now.
