More Sun, Fewer Storms

South Florida will see plenty of sun and some (mostly western) storms on Monday as ocean breezes dominate our weather pattern.  The day features sun and clouds to start, with a few quick east coast showers in spots.  The bulk of the showers and storms will develop in the interior and along the Gulf coast in the late afternoon and evening.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Monday will be near 90 degrees right along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.
Tuesday will bring a few early east coast showers, hot sun and some clouds, and some afternoon showers and storms, especially along the Gulf coast and in the interior.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Wednesday will see the pattern continue for one more day, with early east coast showers and afternoon showers and storms well inland and along the Gulf coast.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
More moisture moves in on Thursday, so look for more widespread showers and storms in the afternoon.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Friday will be hot and humid, with afternoon storms and showers around.  Highs on Friday will be in the low to mid 90s.
In the tropics, the low that we’ve been watching in the central Atlantic is now interacting with an upper level low.  The National Hurricane Center now gives this feature a low chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression during the next 5 days.
