AFTERNOON STORMS CONTINUE

Tropical moisture continues to stream over south Florida and will provide more fuel for afternoon storms on Wednesday. Today's thunderstorm pattern was very active and wet with plenty of lightning, and tomorrow will likely be very similar. Most of the heavy rain and storms are ending at the time of this forecast update and there will only be a few more showers to track later this evening. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight and break to mostly sunny by morning with a low temperature in the mid 70's.

Humidity will continue to be high on Wednesday and our daytime high will top out around 90 degrees. Afternoon storms will begin to fire up around lunch time tomorrow and you can expect some areas to be hit with heavy rain and frequent lightning.

Tropical Depression 2 is still moving on a westerly course toward the Windward Islands of the Caribbean and it is not expected to get stronger over the next several days. Return to index of stories...
