Weather Forecast: Afternoon Storms Tuesday in South Florida

Early sunshine followed by storms, highs around 89



    Weather Forecast -- 5:30 a.m. -- July 9, 2013 (Published Tuesday, July 9, 2013)

    Some early sunshine will give way to building clouds and afternoon showers and storms Tuesday as highs reach 89 in South Florida.

    Showers and storms hold steady in the local weather pattern as tropical moisture returns to the region. This will occur as a non-tropical, upper-level low spins across the state starting Tuesday night. This should spell chances for showers and storms nearly each day for the remainder of the work week, leading into the weekend.

    Tropical Storm Chantal will move swiftly into the eastern Caribbean, past the Lesser Antilles, late Tuesday afternoon. Though South Florida remains in the long-range cone, there is a great amount of uncertainty if there will be any impact to our local weather by the weekend.

    For Tuesday, expect scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will stay around 81 Tuesday night. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms and highs around 88.
