Very Hot Start For Summer

very hot start

It’s the first day of summer (at least by the calendar) on Friday, and the season is off to a very hot start in South Florida.  Friday features plenty of sun and drier air, but the combination will make for dangerously hot conditions.  Highs on Friday will be in the low to mid 90s, but it will feel as if we’re well into the triple digits — so limit outdoor activities and stay hydrated.

Saturday will be sunny and dry once again.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s, but it will feel quite a bit hotter.

Sunday will start with lots of sun, but clouds, showers, and a few storms will pop up during the afternoon.  Sunday’s highs will be mostly in the low 90s.

Monday will bring a return to a more typical rainy season pattern, with a mix of sun and clouds followed by mid to late afternoon showers and storms.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Tuesday will feature more of the same — sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 90s.

The tropical Atlantic remains quiet as summer officially begins.
