MIAMI (CBSMiami) – If you made beach plans for the holiday weekend, keep them. South Florida will only see spotty storms and a light southerly wind.
The best chances of thunderstorms will be north of the Everglades and near Lake Okeechobee Friday and Saturday.
A stray storm or two can’t be ruled out during the afternoons, after all, this is the wet season, but most of the storms that develop will be away from the beaches.
South Florida will see an increase in the coverage of storms for late in the weekend and Labor Day.
High temperatures will be in the lower 90s away from the beaches and the upper 80s to near 90 degrees along the coast all weekend. Expect a mixture of sunshine and clouds.
The tropics continue to be somewhat calm considering this is considered a time of the season most storms develop.
While the Atlantic is not very active, two tropical waves are being watched.
The first is in the central Atlantic and has a low chance of development as it moves westward.
The second has just emerged from the coast of Africa and has a lot of potential to become a depression and possibly a tropical storm in the next five days. However, so far, many computer models send the system out to sea.
