Typical Summer Day, Beware Of Rip Currents

Typical Summer

Typical SummerIt feels like a typical summer day in South Florida on Saturday, but without the afternoon storms. Instead, Saturday will feature plenty of hot sun, some clouds on the breeze, a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches, and just the chance of a few quick showers. Any storms will develop well inland and mostly to our north. Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday will bring lots of sun, some clouds, and a few scattered showers. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s.

Moisture will start to work in on Monday, so a few more showers and a stray storm are in the forecast, along with sun and clouds. Highs on Monday will be near 90 degrees.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds, passing showers, and a few afternoon storms on Tuesday. Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

More of the same is on tap for Wednesday — a mix of sun and clouds with showers and a few storms thrown in. Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

What’s left of Cindy is bringing heavy rain to the mid-Atlantic states. Elsewhere, the tropics are quiet.
