Steamy Heat And Western Storms

South Florida will see more steamy heat on Thursday, as most of the showers and storms will be in the western part of the area.  Thursday features hot sun, some building clouds, and afternoon showers and storms mostly along the Gulf coast and well inland.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 90s in the east coast metro area and the mid 90s elsewhere — but everywhere will feel about 10 degrees hotter.

Friday will be mostly sunny with some afternoon showers and storms, especially in the western part of South Florida.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s in the east coast metro area and the mid 90s elsewhere.

Saturday will feature sun, clouds, and mostly afternoon showers (with a few storms in spots).  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday will be another day of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Monday with widespread showers and storms throughout the region.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

The remnants of Barry have made their northward to the Great Lakes, and they continue to bring rain to the Ohio River valley and the Mid-Atlantic states.  The tropical Atlantic is still quiet.
