Mother Nature Shines On Mother’s Day

  South Florida will be mostly sunny for Mother’s Day, at least for most of the afternoon.  Sunday features good sun and a few clouds, and the Gulf coast will be mostly rain-free.  But look for late afternoon and evening showers and storms in the east coast metro area.  Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

Monday will bring sun, clouds, and some mostly east coast storms.  Monday’s highs will be in the upper 80s at Gulf coast locations and the low 90s elsewhere.

Tuesday will be another humid day of sun, clouds, and afternoon storms.  Tuesday’s highs will range from the mid 80s right at the Gulf coast to the low 90s in the east coast metro area and well inland.

Look for clouds, some sun, and showers on Wednesday as a weak front stalls out just north of us.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Thursday’s forecast includes plenty of clouds and passing showers as the remnants of the front linger.  Highs on Thursday will be in the mid 80s.
