Tuesday will bring mostly sunny skies, periods of showers and storms, and a gusty breeze to the east coast metro area.  The Gulf coast will see some sun, more clouds, and plenty of showers and storms, especially in the afternoon.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees right at the Atlantic coast and in the low 90s elsewhere in South Florida.

Wednesday will feature plenty of sun and a few clouds in the east coast metro area, while the Gulf coast will see a mix of sun and clouds with some afternoon showers and storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will be mostly sunny with a few quick afternoon showers and storms.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday’s forecast calls for lots of sun, a few clouds, and a few showers and storms in spots.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the wave in the eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of becoming a depression by the end of the week.  It’s far away, but we’ll keep an eye on it.
