Same Old Forecast for South Florida – Clouds, Storms and repeat

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Aug. 1, 2015 – South Florida begins the month of August with plenty of clouds and some afternoon storms. After a few morning showers in spots, look for clouds, highs in the muggy low 90s, and storms developing in the afternoon. While cloud cover will limit the extent of storms, those that do form could bring heavy rain and localized flooding.

Sunday will be cloudy as well, with some showers and storms and highs around 90 degrees.

We’ll be back to morning showers on an ocean breeze on Monday, followed by highs in the low 90s and afternoon storms forming along the sea breeze.

That pattern will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday.
In the tropics, the weak low a few hundred miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands is moving westward into increasingly unfavorable conditions. The National Hurricane Center gives this feature a low chance of developing into a depression over the next five days.
