By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 18, 2015 – South Florida will start Saturday with a tranquil morning but storms will be back in the afternoon. Look for storms to move through the area, bringing periods of heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds. Highs will be near 90 degrees. A thin layer of Saharan dust will finally work its way in late on Saturday, making Sunday less stormy, but those storms that do develop could be strong.
Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s. The workweek features afternoon storms, mostly forming along the sea breeze, and highs in the sticky low 90s.
In the tropics, the wave we’ve been watching is now about halfway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Windwards. It’s moving into an area that’s unfavorable to development, and the National Hurricane Center gives it virtually no chance of becoming a depression during the next 5 days.
