Summer Heat And Storms Won’t Quit Florida

Tuesday features plenty of dangerously hot sun again.  Look for afternoon storms in the interior, making their way into parts of the east coast metro area.  Some of these could be strong, with gusty winds, lightning, and periods of heavy rain.   Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 90s — but it will feel like triple-digit heat, so stay hydrated and out of the sun.
