Soggy Start to the 4th of July

Tropical moisture will remain in place to start off the weekend.

Once the South Florida heat fires up by the afternoon, we will see the clouds building up as scattered storms take over the forecast until the early evening hours on Saturday. The primary storm impacts will be anytime downpours leading to street flooding, frequent lightning and wind gusts 40-55 mph.


Sunday will be a transitional day as showers remain in the forecast with the bulk of the afternoon/evening storms over the inland areas. As high pressure returns our main weather maker starting on Monday, the typical summertime pattern will be the setup for the 4th of July on Monday.

Additionally, Saharan Dust will return to South Florida by Tuesday and Wednesday. While this will create hazy sunshine and keep rain chances below average, it will also trigger respiratory and allergy issues.

There are no areas of interest for tropical development over the next 5 days.
