South Florida will see typical summer showers and hot sun on Friday, but wetter weather is on the way. After a warm morning with early showers (especially in the Keys), Friday features a mix of sun and clouds and passing showers during the first part of the day, followed by the chance of a storm well inland as the sea breeze gets going. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.
Look for more widespread showers and some afternoon storms on Saturday, but we’ll also see some sun. Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Sunday will bring some showers and afternoon storms. Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.
We’ll see an ocean breeze and early showers on Monday, and the sea breeze will keep afternoon storm activity mostly to our west. Highs on Monday will be mostly in the low 90s.
Tuesday features a similar mix of early showers, sun and clouds, and maybe a stray storm on the sea breeze front. Tuesday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Tropical Depression # 4 was holding together and moving rapidly to the west-northwest early Friday. At 5 am, TD # 4 was located near 15.0 North, 48.8 West, and was zipping along at 22 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 30 miles per hour, but slight strengthening is possible before wind shear takes its toll. TD # 4 is forecast to dissipate well to our east in a few days, but we’ll watch it until that happens.Click here for reuse options!
