Showers and Storms Around


image4Showers and storms will be around South Florida on Tuesday. After some overnight showers and storms (especially in Broward), look for showers to linger throughout South Florida on Tuesday morning. The east coast will see a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will reach the low 90s on Tuesday, and spotty afternoon storms will develop, with the highest concentration along the Gulf coast and in the interior.

Wednesday afternoon’s highs will reach the sticky low 90s, and spotty storms will develop throughout South Florida, with most of the activity in the far western suburbs of Miami-Dade and Broward, interior regions, and in the Naples area.

A few early showers will be around on Thursday, especially along the east coast and in the Keys. Afternoon storms will follow, scattered throughout the region, but with the greatest likelihood of storms in the interior and along the Gulf coast. Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday will bring a few east coast morning showers, highs in the seasonable low 90s, and scattered afternoon storms, mainly inland and along the Gulf coast.
