The warm start to the work week in South Florida doesn't look like it will be going anywhere on Tuesday with temperatures in the record setting range.

The morning saw Key West tie its record for a low temperature while both Miami and Fort Lauderdale came close. Highs will reach into the mid-90s yet again with feels like temperatures above 105° for the better part of the afternoon.

Extra water and frequent breaks are recommended for anyone that plans to spend extended periods of time outside.

Rain chances are again slim, but we keep a slight chance of a thunderstorms in the picture later this afternoon for inland areas. These storms could become strong with heavy rain and gusty winds. However, the rain is not expected to be widespread. 

Highs will stay in the mid 90s with uncomfortable humidity for the rest of the week with rain chances around 20-30%. By Independence Day, rain chances will be around 30% with a high of 94°.

Rain chances increase slightly by Sunday and remain scattered into our next work week.
