June Brings Afternoon Storms And Showers And Watching The Tropics

Afternoon Storms
If it’s June in South Florida, it’s afternoon storms and showers — and Tuesday is no exception.  The day features a few early showers and a mix of sun and clouds, followed by showers and storms developing along the sea breezes during the afternoon.  Highs on Tuesday will be mostly in the upper 80s.
After overnight showers in spots, Wednesday will bring a mix of sun and clouds giving way to another round of afternoon storms and showers.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.
Thursday’s forecast will include sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms in spots.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Look for a mix of sun and clouds, with some afternoon showers and storms on Friday.  Friday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
The forecast for Saturday is a bit uncertain, depending on the progress of Saharan dust, which suppresses storm and shower formation.  For now, we’ll say Saturday will see a mix of sun and clouds, with a few passing showers and storms.  Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.
In the tropics, an area of showers and storms in the western Caribbean has a low chance of developing into a tropical depression over the 5 days.  It is expected to bring plenty of rain to portions of Central America and the Yucatan as it moves westward and then northwestward into the Gulf of Mexico.
