Passing Showers Won’t Lower The Heat; Watching An Approaching Wave


South Florida will be hot again on Tuesday as a few passing showers won’t break the heat. After some coastal showers to start, Tuesday features a mix of sun and clouds, passing showers on the ocean breeze, a high risk of dangerous rip currents that the Atlantic beaches, and maybe an inland storm forming along the sea breeze. Highs on Tuesday will be mostly in the low 90s, with slightly higher reading possible well inland.

We’re watching a wave in the central Atlantic which still has a low chance of becoming a depression. Some of the models show it moving across southern Florida as a wave (bringing heavy rains) early next week, while others develop it and keep it east of the Bahamas. We’ll keep a close eye on it in any case.
