Steamy With Showers And Storms

steamy
Rain forecast

South Florida will be steamy with showers and storms on Monday as we continue to deal with plenty of moisture.  The day features periods of sun, plenty of clouds, and widespread showers and storms, especially in the afternoon.  Highs on Monday will be in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast and the low 90s elsewhere — but it will feel like the triple digits.

Tuesday will bring a bit more sun to the western part of South Florida, while the east coast metro area will see mostly cloudy skies.  Expect periods of showers and storms in the afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Wednesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with afternoon showers and storms, with much of the activity along the Gulf coast and well inland.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Thursday, with afternoon showers and storms concentrating in the east coast metro area.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday’s forecast includes good sun, clouds at times, and passing showers and storms in spots.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the wave nearing the Lesser Antilles is encountering dry air, and it has virtually no chance of developing into a tropical depression.  It will bring rain to some of the islands in a day or two.  Elsewhere in the Atlantic, things are quiet.
