June Begins With Humidity and Storms


It’s June in South Florida, and that means humidity and afternoon storms. Wednesday will feature lots of both, thanks to an upper level trough lingering over us, along with highs in the upper 80s.

image6We’ll see less extensive coverage of showers and storms on Thursday, and highs will again be in the upper 80s.

Friday will bring early showers and some afternoon storms, and highs will be near 90 degrees.

The weekend will be hot, with highs near 90 degrees, and we’ll see more afternoon storms on both Saturday and Sunday.

Faith Based Events

June 1 is also the official start of the Atlantic hurricane season, but as we’ve seen this year, tropical systems don’t always respect the calendar. Seasonal forecasters say to expect a near-average season, but seasonal forecasts can’t predict which areas will be affected by a storm. So be prepared — check your supplies and update your hurricane plan now.
