Sun And Showers Here And The Tropics Are Getting Busy

South Florida will end the month of July with more summertime sun and showers on Wednesday, while the tropics gets busy.  Here at home, Wednesday features good sun to start, followed by afternoon showers and a few storms in spots.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s along the east coast and the low 90s elsewhere.

We’ll see more moisture work in on Thursday, so look for a mix of sun and clouds with periods of showers and storms.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

The wave we’ve been watching will pump tropical moisture into South Florida on Friday, so expect mostly cloudy skies and periods of showers and storms.  Friday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Clouds, showers, and storms hang around on Saturday.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees again.

Sunday’s forecast includes mostly cloudy skies with passing showers and storms.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.

The tropics are getting busy, which is no surprise for this time of year.  In the Caribbean, the tropical wave we’ve been watching this week has a low chance of developing during the next couple of days.  But when it reaches the Bahamas, conditions are a bit more favorable, so we’ll watch it.  We’re also watching a wave in the far eastern Atlantic.  That one has a low chance of developing during the next few days, but we’ll watch it as it makes its way to the Caribbean.
