By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Aug 19, 2015 – South Florida is feeling the summer heat, and early showers and inland storms will be in the mix as well. Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s. Some morning showers and afternoon storms will move through on Thursday and Friday, when temperatures will once again reach the low 90s.
Look for humidity, highs in the low to mid 90s, and some afternoon storms this weekend, and a similar pattern will be in place as school starts again on Monday.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Danny has not become better organized early Wednesday. As of 5 am, Danny was estimated to be near 11.3 North, 40.2 West, and it was moving west at 14 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour, and strengthening is expected over the next few days. While Danny will encounter dry air before reaching the vicinity of the Leeward Islands early next week, the effects of that air on the system are not certain. We’ll be watching Danny’s progress closely.
