Summer Weather Is Here For Awhile (Video)

We’re not officially there yet, but it feels like summer in South Florida Tuesday (and for quite a while).  Tuesday features a mix of hot sun and clouds, with showers and storms popping up, especially in the afternoon.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel hotter.

Wednesday will bring sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees in the east coast metro area and the low 90s everywhere else.

Thursday will feature more of the same — sun, clouds, and those afternoon showers and storms.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

Look for the pattern to continue on Friday, with sun and clouds to start and showers and storms in the afternoon.  Friday’s highs will be around the 90 degree mark near the Atlantic coast and the low 90s elsewhere.  Saturday’s forecast includes a mix of sun and clouds with afternoon showers and storms.  Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, the area of disturbed weather in the Bay of Campeche still has a chance of developing into a depression before reaching the Mexican coast.  But the threat from this system is heavy rainfall, in portions of Mexico, with the moisture plume also affecting Texas and portions of the central U.S. which are already experiencing record-breaking flooding.
