Watch For Afternoon Storms Again

Afternoon Storms
Afternoon storms are on tap again for South Florida on Wednesday.  After a few early Keys showers, the day features a mix of sun and clouds, followed by midday and afternoon showers and storms in the east coast metro areas and late afternoon and early evening storms along the Gulf coast.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s.
We’ll see those showers and storms again during the second half of Thursday.  Thursday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
Friday will see sun, clouds, and afternoon showers and storms once again.  Friday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.
We could see enough Sahara dust to work its way in by Saturday to lesser rain chances, so we’ll say right now that the weekend will start with sun, some clouds, and maybe a storm in spots.  Saturday’s highs will be near 90 degrees.
Sunday’s forecast is also a bit uncertain as far as rain is concerned, but we won’t rule out a few isolated storms to develop on a mostly sunny and hot day.  Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.
In the tropics, the area of showers and storms in the western Caribbean will bring rain to Central America and the Yucatan, and it has a low chance of developing into a tropical depression when it reaches the southwestern Gulf of Mexico in a few days.
