A summer weather pattern will stick around South Florida this week. That means more storms, with menacing black clouds and thunder, are expected in the afternoon.
According to National Weather Service meteorologist David Ross, Monday is shaping up to be a bit drier, with only 20 percent chance of thunderstorms and a high near 87.
But Tuesday through the the week, afternoon rain is expected, much like nearly every afternoon last week.
Tuesday will bring a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m., with high temperatures around 87.
“The time frame is looking similar where you see a better chance of rain in the afternoon,” Ross said. “That’s pretty typical for this time of year.”
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday carry similar forecasts, with a 30 percent chance of rain and temperatures in the upper 80s.
Even with the recent rain, Miami-Dade and Broward counties have fallen into extreme drought conditions. Rainfall in Broward is down by more than eight inches; Miami-Dade, seven inches.
Miami-Dade and Broward residents are urged to limit lawn watering to twice a week to help conserve water.
Or just let the afternoon rain do the job.
