Moisture Returns This Afternoon


More moisture is moving into South Florida on Wednesday, and that means summertime showers and storms will be back.  Wednesday features a mix of sun and clouds to start.  Then showers and storms will develop in the afternoon.  Red tide continues to be a problem at the Gulf beaches on Wednesday.  Highs on Wednesday will be near 90 degrees right at the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

Thursday will see additional periods of showers and storms (with some sun), especially along the Gulf coast and in the interior.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Friday will be another summer day of sun and clouds to start and showers and storms in the second half of the day.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Saturday will feature fewer showers and storms as somewhat drier air arrives.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for sun, clouds, and isolated afternoon showers and storms on Sunday.  Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s.
