Stormy Tuesday Followed By S. Florida Heat
Get Breaking News First
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Keep that umbrella close by because some showers and storms are sweeping in across portions of South Florida Tuesday due to a weak tropical wave moving west from the Bahamas and into the Florida Straits.
The weak wave is providing plenty of deep tropical moisture and the east coast sea breeze is also helping to carry the moisture onshore.
Daytime heating will increase the instability in the atmosphere which may lead to a few isolated strong storms with heavy downpours in spots and gusty winds from 40 to 45 mph possible.
Due to a light steering flow, some of the slow moving storms may produce flooding for some areas.
The other big weather story Tuesday is the heat.
Highs will climb to the upper 80s Tuesday and a few neighborhoods may hit the 90-degree mark. When you factor in the high humidity it will feel like the mid to upper 90s.
As the wave slides to the west and abundant moisture builds in across South Florida, the storm chance will remain fairly high through Thursday.
Late week will be even warmer as a front approaches and our winds shift out of the southwest and the west. This wind flow over the land usually helps temperatures warm up even further.
Highs will soar to the low to mid 90s and it may feel like the triple-digits because of the humidity.
It’ll be a very summery weather pattern into Father’s Day weekend with some spotty storms here and there.
