Typical Summertime Weather Today

summertime weather

A typical South Florida summertime weather pattern is in place on Friday for the next few days, so look for early east coast showers and late afternoon Gulf coast storms.  Friday features that pattern, with some morning showers passing through Miami-Dade and Broward counties on an ocean breeze. We’ll also see a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.  Storms and showers will develop in the afternoon and evening along the Gulf coast.  And red tide is again an issue at beaches along the Gulf coast.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

Saturday will bring a few (mostly morning) east coast showers but otherwise a mix of sun and clouds, while the Gulf coast and interior deal with widespread showers and storms, especially late in the day.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Sunday will feature some early showers in the east coast metro area and those late-day showers and storms in points to the west.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday will see early east coast showers and afternoon showers and storms, especially in the interior.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Tuesday’s forecast includes sun, clouds, and more widespread passing showers and storms.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s.
