More Sun, Fewer Storms Today


South Florida will see more sun and fewer storms on Thursday as we transition to our typical summer weather pattern. After a few early east coast showers, Thursday features sun and clouds to start, with afternoon storms forming in spots along the sea breeze.  Most of the storms will be well inland.  The Gulf beaches continue to deal with red tide (and the respiratory issues it brings) at least through Thursday.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s.

Friday will bring some sea breeze showers and storms in the afternoon, after sun and clouds in the morning.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for a summertime Saturday with sun and clouds to start, followed by afternoon showers and storms, mostly inland.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Sunday will feature sun, clouds, and some afternoon showers and storms.  Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Monday’s forecast includes sun, clouds, and late-day showers and storms in spots.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.
