Summertime Storms Continue; TS Don Now A Wave With Another Wave Coming

Summertime Storms

South Florida can’t seem to shake the summertime storms, at least for the next couple of days. After a mostly dry start on Wednesday, look for sun and clouds to give way to slow-moving showers and storms during the afternoon and early evening. Localized flooding is possible as the weak winds park showers and storms over affected areas. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s.

Storm chances will remain on the high side on Thursday, so passing showers and afternoon storms will be back. Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Some moisture will linger on Friday, so early showers, a mix of sun and clouds, and afternoon storms are in the forecast.

Computer models indicate drier air will be in place over the weekend. Saturday will see a few early showers, a mix of sun and clouds, and an afternoon storm or two in the western suburbs. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Faith Based Events

Sunday will bring more of the same — an early shower in spots, sun and clouds, and a few afternoon storms especially well inland. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, what was Tropical Storm Don has degenerated into an open wave in the southeastern Caribbean. The wave that is now entering the central Atlantic has a low chance of developing during the next 5 days.
