Typical Summer Weather – Sticky, Sunny, Storms

Typical Summer Weather

South Florida will be back to a more typical summer weather pattern of sun and storms on Wednesday.  The day features a mix of sun and clouds with mostly afternoon showers and storms passing through.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast and the low 90s elsewhere — but sticky conditions will make it feel quite a bit hotter.

Thursday will bring good sun, some clouds at times, and passing showers and storms, especially in the afternoon hours.  Thursday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

The pattern continues on Friday, with plenty of sun to start, building clouds, and a few afternoon showers and storms.  Friday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for more showers and storms on Saturday, but we’ll also have periods of sun.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.

Sunday will feature good sun, a few clouds, and a shower or storm in spots, especially in the western part of our area.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.

The tropical Atlantic remains quiet.
