Here is your forecast for Wednesday July 10th, 2024

Isolated showers and storms will wind down after sunset. Overnight will stay cloudy and humid with morning lows in the upper 70s and lower 80s along the coast.

While the Saharan Air Layer gradually subsides on Thursday, more showers and storms are expected to fire up in the afternoon. With westerly winds between 5-10 mph, most of these storms should be east of I-75 and especially toward Lake Okeechobee. High temperatures will run in the low 90s with a "feels like" temperature around 100°.

Rain chances continue to increase as we wrap up the work week. The latest computer modeling is painting some early morning rain on Friday with scattered storms continuing into the afternoon.

WEEKEND PLANS? The morning will be the drier time frame. Our rain chances increase to 70% in the afternoon. We will start both days sunny, and thanks to an easterly flow our highs will climb into the mid 90s before showers and storms develop late afternoon and continue through the evening hours.

Tropics Check

Off the Southeastern U.S. Coast: A broad trough of low pressure located a few hundred miles off the southeastern U.S. coast continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear only marginally favorable for some additional development of this system over the next couple of days before it moves inland over the southeastern U.S. by this weekend.
