By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Aug 13, 2015 – South Florida will see more afternoon storms on Thursday, and some of those storms could be strong. After a muggy but mostly dry morning, look for building clouds, highs in the low to mid 90s, and storms developing around midday. Periods of heavy rain and dangerous lightning are possible with any of those storms, and some could be strong enough to pack damaging wind gusts and small hail. The storms will taper off Thursday evening, but we’ll see them return on Friday.
Friday’s highs will reach the low 90s before storms develop in the afternoon, and again locally heavy rain, lightning, strong wind gusts, and small hail are possible. Afternoon storms are again in the forecast for the weekend, with Saturday seeing more widespread activity. Highs will be in the low 90s on Saturday and Sunday. Our typical summer pattern of afternoon storms forming on the sea breeze and highs in the low 90s returns on Monday and Tuesday.
