Sizzling Heat Continues


Monday features lots of very hot and hazy sun as our stretch of dangerously hot weather continues.  An excessive heat warning is in effect for Miami-Dade from 10 am to 8 pm on Monday. The heat advisory continues for the rest of South Florida on Monday, and it’s been extended for all of South Florida until at least Tuesday evening.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid-90s right at the coasts and in portions of the Keys, but elsewhere in South Florida, we’ll reach the upper 90s — and are expected to break some records.  And it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter, so stay hydrated and out of the sun.

In the tropics, the wave in the central Atlantic now has only a low chance of becoming a depression before reaching portions of the Lesser Antilles later this week.  After that, this wave will encounter hostile conditions in the Caribbean.  Elsewhere, Don briefly became a hurricane on Saturday but has weakened to tropical storm strength again.. Since it’s moving into an area of cooler waters in the middle of the Atlantic, Don is forecast to lose its tropical characteristics on Monday and dissipate (finally) on Tuesday.
