Sun, Showers, Storms Move East To West; Tropics Are Active

east
South Florida will see sun, showers, and a few storms on Monday.  Look for a few quick east coast showers early, followed by sun and clouds.  The Atlantic sea breeze will kick in later, pushing shower and storm development to the west, with greatest coverage over the interior and Gulf coast late in the afternoon.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches on Monday into midweek.  Highs on Monday will be near 90 degrees.
Tuesday will feature early east coast showers, sun and clouds, and a few afternoon showers and storms, especially in the interior.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Wednesday will be another day of early showers moving in from the Atlantic, followed by afternoon showers and storms in western parts of the area.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Look for more of the same on Thursday — some early east coast showers, sun and clouds, and afternoon showers and storms mainly in the interior and along the Gulf coast.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Friday’s forecast includes early Atlantic coastal showers, sun and clouds, and afternoon showers and storms focused on the western portion of the area.  Highs on Friday will be near 90 degrees.
Subtropical Storm Leslie

We now have Subtropical Storm Leslie in the central Atlantic.  At 5 am Monday, Leslie was located near 32.6 North, 48.6 West, and was moving south at 6 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour.  Leslie is expected to merge with a front in a few days.

Tropical Depression Kirk

To the southeast, Kirk is now a tropical depression.  At 5 am Monday, TD Kirk was located near 9.5 North, 37.4 West, and was zipping west at 24 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour.  Kirk is moving too quickly to strengthen much, and the environment that it’s travelling through will become increasingly hostile by late in the week.

Elsewhere, the area of low pressure now midway between Bermuda and the Bahamas has a medium chance of developing during the next 5 days.  And computer models indicate another area of low pressure will form north of Subtropical Storm Leslie by midweek.  This feature has a medium chance of developing into a depression by the weekend.
