Heat Advisory For Florida Today

A heat advisory is in effect for all of South Florida on Thursday from noon to 6 pm.  Stay hydrated and indoors as much as possible on a day of sizzling hot sun and hazy skies.  We can’t rule out a quick shower or storm late in the day, especially near the Gulf coast, despite the Saharan dust.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low to mid 90s in the east coast metro area and the mid 90s elsewhere — but it will feel about 10 degrees hotter.

Friday will bring a few more showers and maybe a storm in the afternoon.  Look for lots of very hot sun with a few clouds, along with a sometimes gusty ocean breeze near the Atlantic coast.  Friday’s highs will be in the mid 90s along the Gulf coast and in the interior and the low 9o to mid 90s in the east coast metro area.

Saturday will feature good sun and a few clouds to start, with showers and storms building in the afternoon.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low to mid 90s.

Faith Based Events

Sunday will be another summer day with mostly sunny skies to start, followed by periods of showers and storms in the afternoon.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday’s forecast includes a mix of sun and clouds early, and widespread showers and storms in the afternoon.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 90s.

What was Tropical Depression Dolly is now a remnant low in the north Atlantic.  The tropical Atlantic is quiet right now.
