Something changes around mid-August and the shift is all about the timing of the daily storms, here’s more on this shift. The impact is subtle at first but be ready for anytime, day, or night, storms.

Tuesday we will warm up quickly into the low 90s. The showers and thunderstorms fire up a little earlier in the afternoon hours, peaking around 2pm along I-95, with later chances for storms over our inland counties. Expect 70% coverage of the showers and thunderstorms.

Wednesday might end up being the wettest day this week, with widespread showers and thunderstorms expected between 2-7p.m. Afternoon highs will hit 91° before the storms fire up.

Thursday looks very similar to Wednesday’s forecast with a quick warm up into the low 90s, cooling down during the afternoon hours thanks to widespread storms.

Friday into the weekend we see enhanced rain chances thanks to an influx of tropical moisture across the state. The rain will be so widespread it keeps us from hitting the 90s, only topping out around 89°.

WATCHING THE TROPICS - This weekend one system may approach South Florida
