Staying Summery

The typical summertime pattern will invade South Florida into the start of the weekend.

We will see a few showers and storms favoring metro/coastal in the overnight and morning hours. The sea breeze is expected to fire up each day and push tropical moisture inland. This will result in scattered showers and storms with anytime downpours favoring the western suburbs through Sunday.

TROPICS

On Wednesday, Tropical Depression 6 become the next named storm of this hurricane season as it strengthened into Tropical Storm Fiona. This system is over the open waters of the Atlantic waters, 800 miles to the west of the Cape Verde Islands. Models suggest this storm will be a threat to the shipping lanes as it maintains tropical storm strength through Sunday. This system is not a threat to South Florida.
