  • Some overnight showers & storms
  • Clouds will thin out, high dew points
  • Lows in upper 70s to low 80s

An area of high pressure will remain near South Florida so the onshore wind pattern will continue into next week.

Boating conditions will remain poor due to thunderstorms in the Gulf and over the Bay, plus gusty daytime winds.

The southwest wind will bring showers and some thunderstorms into our area early morning Sunday. Storms will again develop inland with the heat of the day. Skies will be mostly cloudy and it will be breezy, especially near the coast. Winds will be out of the west to southwest. Highs will be in the 80s to near 90 inland.

On Monday, the pattern continues. Storms will develop in the Gulf of Mexico and move onto the coast, becoming more numerous as they spread inland. The upper level low to our north will move into North Florida. This may increase the strength of the storms. Skies will be mostly cloudy, with stronger breezy west winds. High temperatures will  be in the upper 80s to low 90s Sunday. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s to low 80s.

Tuesday, southwest onshore wind will again create breezy conditions throughout the day, especially along the coast. High rain chances continue. Expect numerous showers and storms across our area. With the clouds and rain, afternoon highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the onshore wind pattern continues.  Rain chances should drop a little as the upper low starts moving west and away from Florida.

We may return to a more typical summertime pattern by the end of next week with mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms. This pattern change will occur when winds switch, coming from the southeast, allowing for an afternoon sea breeze.
