Summertime Scattered Showers And Storms

Summertime Scattered
South Florida will see the typical summertime scattered showers and storms on Saturday.  The day starts with sun and clouds, but those showers and storms will pop up in the afternoon as moisture moves in from the southwest.  It won’t be a beach weekend along the Gulf coast, because beaches there are dealing with red tide at least through the weekend.  Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.
Sunday will see the summer weather pattern remain in place, with afternoon showers and storms.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Monday will feature sun and clouds, followed by afternoon showers and storms, especially in the interior and along the Gulf coast.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Afternoon showers and storms will be back on Tuesday, with greatest coverage in the western parts of South Florida.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Wednesday could see more widespread showers and storms, prior to the arrival of some Saharan dust late in the day.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s again.
In the tropics, a disorganized area of showers about halfway between Africa and the Lesser Antilles has a low chance of development as it moves westward during the next few days.  We’ll keep an eye on it.
