Tropical Wave Bringing Us Stormy Weather Later; Watching The Tropics

Tropical Wave

Tropical WaveSunday along Florida’s southwest coast features early sun followed by storms as some tropical moisture moves in. Look for storms and showers to develop as the Gulf breeze picks up and collides with the Atlantic sea breeze. Periods of heavy rain and dangerous lightning are possible with these storms. Highs on Sunday will be near 90 degrees.

Tropical WaveRain chances will remain on the high side on Monday, with storms and showers passing through the area. Highs on Monday will be near 90 degrees.

Tuesday will see early sun, and then storms will develop in the afternoon along the Gulf breeze. Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Wednesday features good sun to start, with afternoon storms popping up, especially inland. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 90s.

Thursday will bring more of the same — plenty of sun early in the day and storms developing in the afternoon hours. Thursday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

In the tropics, a wave in the central Atlantic is showing signs of slow development. The National Hurricane Center gives it a medium chance of becoming a depression during the next 5 days.
