We have high pressure to our east and some moisture still in place, so we will see passing showers and isolated storm from time to time this Thursday. The forecast is trending a little drier for Friday.
By the weekend, look for typical Summer pattern for South Florida. This means we will see strong sunshine to start and the breeze pushing any showers or storms that develop in the afternoon well inland. Temperature wise, we will be sizzling in the 90’s.
Tropical Storm Fiona is a little stronger today with 45 mph winds in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Slight weakening expected in the next 3 days as it moves into the Central Atlantic through early next week. Right now, the forecast track calls for Fiona to remain a tropical storm through early next week. It is so far away that if anything changes, we will have plenty of time to watch.
The National Hurricane Center is following a wave that is current over the African continent. It is expected to move offshore on Saturday with slow development possible. It only has a low chance to form through the next 5 days.
Have a wonderful day South Florida and make it a safe one!
