Showers

South Florida will see a hot day with some showers on Monday as Tropical Storm Franklin has formed well to our southwest. After some early showers, Monday will feature a mix of hot sun and clouds, passing showers at times, a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches, and a few afternoon storms (mostly inland) forming along the sea breeze. Highs on Monday will be mostly in the low 90s, with some higher readings well inland.

Tuesday will bring a few showers to start, a mix of sun and clouds, an elevated risk of rip currents at the Atlantic beaches, and a few afternoon storms. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday will see more of the same — a few early showers, sun and clouds, and an afternoon storm or two. Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Tropical moisture works in on Thursday, so we’ll see passing showers and storms along with some sun. Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Friday features some sun, more clouds, and passing showers and storms. Friday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

ShowersTropical Storm Franklin formed in the western Caribbean overnight. At 5 am Monday, Franklin was located near 17.1 North, 84.2 West, and was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 45 miles per hour, but Franklin is expected to strengthen before making landfall in the Yucatan Monday night or early Tuesday. Elsewhere in the tropics, the wave in the central Atlantic has a low chance of developing during the next 5 days, but we’ll keep an eye on it.
