The weather in South Florida has been fine with hot and humid conditions continuing. There is a chance of seeing some showers and an isolated storm favoring inland areas and Gulf coast due to a build breeze out of the East-Northeast. By Wednesday, temperatures will be nearing-record levels with highs in the low to mid 90’s as a front moves into North Florida.
Late week a slot of drier air should limit showers from developing, but temporarily. Most models are showing deeper moisture getting trapped across South Florida with a front stalling over North-Central Florida this weekend. Therefore, it could turn wetter starting Friday.
