Some Storms Around

­­­­­­­­By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 13, 2015 – South Florida will transition into a typical rainy season pattern as a few storms return Monday afternoon.  After a mostly dry morning, look for highs in the sticky low 90s, followed by passing storms, most of them forming to the west of the metro area.

More afternoon storms will develop on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing some heavy downpours and gusty winds.  Highs will be in the low 90s.

Storms will be around again on Thursday and Friday, although coverage won’t be as widespread.  Highs will once again be in the muggy low 90s.


Faith Based Events

The area of disturbed weather about 250 miles off the North Carolina coast has not developed tropical characteristics.  The National Hurricane Center gives it a very low chance of becoming a depression as it moves to the northeast over the next few days.
