Showers to Start, Breezy Finish

image3By Donna Thomas, Meteorologist, June 14, 2015 – South Florida starts Sunday with some passing showers, but breezes and heat will dominate the day. Look for plenty of clouds before the sun breaks through, a moderate risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches, and highs in the upper 80s.

Breezes will begin to slacken on Monday, and we’ll see a few showers, sun and clouds, and highs near 90 degrees. Just a few early showers and highs around the 90 degree mark will be in the forecast from Tuesday through Friday, as we get a break from our typical June afternoon storms.

In the tropics, an area of showers and storms is moving over the Yucatan and into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center gives this feature a medium chance of developing into a depression as it moves northwestward towards the Texas or Louisiana coast over the next several days.
