afternoon storms

afternoon stormsSouth Florida will see plenty of afternoon storms again on Thursday, but we should catch a break over the weekend. Thursday will start with early passing showers, and slow-moving storms will develop during the afternoon and early evening. Localized flooding is possible with periods of heavy downpours. Highs on Thursday will be near 90 degrees.

afternoon stormsFriday won’t bring relief from the tropical moisture and weak steering flow that allow those afternoon storms to hang around and dump so much rain. Highs on Friday will be mostly in the low 90s.

Somewhat drier air will finally arrive on Saturday, so look for a few early coastal showers, sun and clouds, and afternoon storms confined mostly to the far western suburbs and interior. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday will continue the drier pattern, with an early shower in spots, sun and clouds, and afternoon storms mostly west of the metro area. Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday’s forecast includes an isolated early shower, sun and clouds, and an afternoon storm or two. Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the wave in the central Atlantic is entering an area with conditions that are unfavorable for development.
