Today Will Be Drier And A Lot Hotter

South Florida will be a bit hotter and quite a bit drier on Saturday, but the storms will be back on Sunday.  In the meantime, Saturday features a mix of hot sun and some clouds, with the possibility of an inland storm or two in the afternoon.  Highs on Saturday will be near 90 degrees.
Fathers Day will bring sun and clouds in the morning, but storms will pop up later in the day, with most widespread activity along the Gulf coast.  Sunday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Some early east coast showers are in the forecast for Monday, and storms will develop in the afternoon and evening again.  Monday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Look for fewer storms on Tuesday, as well as an increasing risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.  Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Wednesday will feature sun, clouds, and a few late day storms, mostly in the interior.  Highs on Wednesday will be mostly in the upper 80s.
In the tropics, we’re again keeping an eye on the area of storms and showers over the Yucatan.  The National Hurricane Center gives it a low chance of developing into a tropical depression, but it will bring rain to portions of Texas and Louisiana in a couple of days.
