Thursday forecast: Storms likely again

Sun Sentinel

Another round of afternoon storms is expected to move across South Florida on Thursday, the result of heat, humidity and instability in the atmosphere.

Some of the storms could be strong, with gusty winds, lightning and hail, the National Weather Service in Miami said.

Officially, the forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 80s, lows in the low 70s and a 50 percent chance of showers and storms, mainly after 2 p.m.

Thanks to a weak cold front, the temperatures should cool slightly on Friday and over the weekend. Also the rain chance eases to 20 percent over the next few days.

Afternoon storms likely will return next week, meteorologist Robert Molleda said. If rainy season isn't already here, it's getting darn close, he added.
