By Donna Thomas, EyesOnNews.com Meteorologist, Aug 8, 2014 – South Florida is still stuck in a rainy pattern on Friday, as tropical moisture over the Bahamas moved in to make for a rainy morning commute. Look for lightning and downpours during the early morning, then hot sun, highs mostly in the steamy low 90s, followed by afternoon storms in spots. Saturday will see morning lows in the muggy upper 70s, some early sun and clouds, highs in the low 90s, and afternoon storms in some areas. We’ll be hot but not as stormy on Sunday, with highs in the low 90s and a chance of a few inland storms. That pattern holds into the early part of the workweek, with rain chances increasing again on Wednesday.

The tropical Atlantic is quiet, but Hawaii is experiencing a weekend with the threat of two tropical cyclones. Tropical Storm Iselle is bringing heavy rain and the threat of mudslides as it moves over the Big Island and affects the rest of the state on Friday. And Hurricane Julio is now a category 3, but it is forecast to weaken significantly before its closest approach to the islands on Sunday into Monday.  View The Weather Channels coverage on the storms effecting Hawaii here
