Mostly Morning Showers for South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Sept. 9, 2015 –¬†South Florida will get some passing morning showers on Wednesday, with afternoon storms mostly remaining well inland. After a muggy start with those passing showers in spots, look for highs in the sticky low 90s and the chance of a stray storm in some of the western suburbs.

Thursday will also feature morning showers on an easterly breeze, highs in the low 90s, and the afternoon sea breeze keeping most storms well inland. More moisture moves in on Friday, so storm chances will increase while temperatures remain in the sticky low 90s. The weekend will bring more showers and storms, along with highs near 90 degrees.
