Early Showers, Afternoon Sunshine Tuesday

Highs in the lower 90s after early showers move through South Florida



    Weather Forecast -- 7:30 AM -- August 21, 2012

    Just a few afternoon t-storms expected, otherwise mostly sunny Tuesday. Meteorologist Shiri Spear has the local forecast. (Published Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012)

    Wake up temperatures in the 70s and 80s will climb into the lower 90s Tuesday afternoon in South Florida.

    An early batch of showers will move from south to north through Miami-Dade and Broward with gusty winds. The showers should dissipate around sunrise.

    Most of the morning will feature sunny skies. Although afternoon t-storms will develop inland, their motion towards the northeast will drive them towards Palm Beach County.  A few afternoon t-storms may affect Broward and Miami-Dade later this afternoon in time for the evening commute.  If the pattern continues like the past couple days, activity will greatly miss us.

    We’re closely tracking Tropical Depression Nine several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles. This system is forecasted to become Tropical Storm Isaac shortly.  It may bring stormy weather to South Florida late this weekend.
