Summerlike Week Ahead

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 2, 2015 – 
It’s early November, but it will feel like summer in South Florida this week. After a mostly dry start to Monday (with a few passing showers in the Middle Keys), look for sun, clouds, maybe a quick shower in spots, and highs in the mid to upper 80s. Tuesday will see a few passing showers and highs mostly in the sticky upper 80s. Shower chances increase a bit on Wednesday as tropical moisture approaches. Wednesday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Passing showers and more clouds are in the forecast for Thursday and Friday, along with highs in the mid 80s.
