Sunny, Hot Start Before Storms Move Ashore Going East To West

Showers and storms will move from South Florida’s east coast to the west on Saturday.  The day features sun and clouds to start, but we’ll see showers and storms pop up in the east coast metro area by late morning.  Then the activity shifts westward in the afternoon, focusing on the interior and the Gulf coast.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees.
Sunday will see slightly drier air move in from the east, so look for fewer showers and storms in Miami-Dade and Broward — but no real break from afternoon storms at the Gulf coast.  Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Monday will bring a shift to a more typical rainy season pattern, with sun and clouds in the morning and scattered showers and storms in the afternoon.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Tuesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds to start, with afternoon showers and storms in spots.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.
Look for more widespread showers and some storms in spots on Wednesday.  Highs on Wednesday will be near 90 degrees.
The tropical Atlantic is quiet right now.  But in the central Pacific, now Tropical Storm Lane lingers near Hawaii.  Lane continues to bring heavy rain to the island of Hawaii, causing dangerous flooding and the threat of landslides.
