South Florida Weather Forecast is a repeat – Hot With a Few Storms and Watching the Tropics

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 30, 2015 – South Florida will see one more really hot day on Thursday.  Look for highs mostly in the mid 90s and some afternoon storms, mostly inland.

Rain chances will go up on Friday as more moisture returns to the atmosphere over our area.  Some early showers will be followed by more widespread afternoon storms.  Friday’s highs will be in the low to mid 90s.

Clouds, passing early showers, and afternoon storms will be in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, and highs will be in the low 90s.

Afternoon storms on the sea breeze will be featured on Monday and Tuesday, along with afternoon highs in the low 90s.

We’re watching a couple of areas in the tropics.  That low off north Florida that’s been affecting the state’s weather since late last week will move northeast before merging with a front on Friday.

The National Hurricane Center gives that feature a low chance of developing into a tropical or subtropical depression over the next few days.

A wave a few hundred miles off the Cape Verde Islands is moving westward, and the National Hurricane Center gives it a low chance of developing during the next five days.
