Steamy End to Spring

­­­­­­­­By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, June 20, 2015 – South Florida will be steamy but mostly rain free on the last official day of spring.  Look for a few early showers in spots, hot sun, and highs in the low 90s.  Fathers Day will be hot and mostly dry, with highs in the low 90s and even a few mid 90s readings possible.

Monday will feature hot sun and highs in the low 90s, but some moisture will work its way in late and increase the chance of overnight showers.  Some early showers are possible Tuesday morning, but Saharan dust will move in during the day, bringing hazy skies and decreasing shower chances.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.  Hazy skies will prevail on Wednesday, and temperatures will top out in the low 90s again.
