Storms Around … and More on the Way for South Florida

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, July 21, 2015 – 
South Florida will see hit and miss storms on Tuesday, but more rain is on the way for the weekend. After a few passing morning showers, Tuesday features hazy heat in the low 90s, then afternoon storms developing in spots. Those areas that get storms will see periods of heavy downpours, but storms won’t be widespread on Tuesday.

A similar pattern of hot sun, highs in the low 90s, and scattered afternoon storms will persist through Thursday.

Friday will bring higher rain chances as the atmosphere moistens up. Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Computer models show a low forming over the Florida peninsula, and that will make Saturday and Sunday stormy, with localized flooding a possibility for Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 80s, thanks to cloud cover and rain.
