By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Sept. 7, 2015 – South Florida’s Labor Day will bring plenty of early sun and a few late afternoon storms. Look for highs in the low 90s for lunchtime cookouts, followed by scattered storms, mostly in the western suburbs.
Ocean breezes will set the pattern for our workweek weather, with a few quick coastal showers during the mornings and just a chance of afternoon storms as the sea breeze pushes well inland. Temperatures will hold steady as well, with highs will be in the low 90s from Tuesday through Friday.
Tropical Storm Grace continues its westward trek into the central Atlantic. At 5 am Monday, Grace was located near 13.5 North, 33.9 West, and was moving west at 16 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour, but Grace already being sheared by unfavorable winds. It will encounter strong wind shear beginning late on Monday, and it is forecast to weaken to depression status or even to devolve into an open wave before reaching the Lesser Antilles late Friday or early Saturday.
