Still Sticky With Storms Around


stickySouth Florida is still sticky and hot on Friday, and some afternoon storms will be around as well. Friday features a continuation of our rainy season pattern, with highs in the low 90s and afternoon storms developing along the east coast se breeze. Storms will fire up in the western suburbs of Miami-Dade and Broward and move into the interior, and a few storms will pop up along the Gulf coast as well. Heavy downpours are possible in spots.

More of the same is on tap for Saturday, as highs again reach the low 90s and some storms develop around the area, with most concentrated in the western parts of the Miami-Dade and Broward metro areas and in the interior.

Sunday will bring more widespread afternoon storm coverage and highs in the sticky low 90s.

Afternoon storms will be around the region again on Monday and Tuesday. Look for highs around 90 degrees on Monday and mostly in the upper 80s on Tuesday.

Faith Based Events

The core of Karl will move just south of Bermuda late on Friday and into Saturday, before Karl begins to race to the northeast.

At 5 am Friday, Lisa was located near 21.8 North, 35.7 West, and was moving northwest at 9 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour.
