Holiday Weekend & Beyond

Mother nature always works in extremes, we've gone from too dry to soggy just like that. Now we are looking forward to celebrating our Nation's Independence along with a little R&R. So, will the weather cooperate?

The image below shows the cloud cover from Arlene moving away, while another line of clouds slowly descends over the Sunshine state.

That line of clouds over Florida, has some moisture with it and will provide a chance for storms for the start of the holiday weekend. So here is my thinking:

Saturday: Some lingering clouds with peeks of sunshine and highs in the low 90's. The possibility is there for numerous t-storms throughout the day.

Sunday: Things begin to improve as more sunshine moves in. Expect a typical summer day with plenty of heat and a chance of afternoon thunder.

Monday 4th of July! Seems like Mother Nature will cooperate with another typical summer day... sun, heat and some scattered t-storms.

The big change may come when you head back to work. Check out the image above, there is an area of clouds near the Lesser Antilles, this is a tropical wave. Long range models hint at this feature moving across South Florida between Tuesday & Thursday dumping more rain across the area.

There is an asterisk to the above, I hate forecasting waves because they can grow rather quickly or fall apart just as fast, so use that "Wet" forecast as a "possible" outlook.

Have a great Holiday Weekend !
