MIAMI – There will be another heat wave, the Heat Warning in effect until Friday, 8:00 PM.
Thursday marks the 10th day in a row that heat advisories have been issued for Broward and Miami-Dade, effective July 4th.
We’ve had eight straight days of record highs in the Miami heat index and five record highs this month in Miami. Wednesday was the second day of July when we hit a record high of 97 degrees in Miami. Our average high this time of year is 91 degrees. We had 11 days of above average highs in the 90s.
We’ve had more time with a heat index above 105 this year than any other.
Thursday’s highs will again be above normal with highs from the low to the mid-90s. When you factor in humidity, it will feel like 105 to 110 degrees. Try to limit outdoor activities in the afternoon and stay hydrated.
As the Saharan dust thins and is gradually removed, some moisture will seep in. Keep your umbrella closed as scattered storms will occur during the day and evening. This rain will bring us relief from the heat.
With a southeasterly wind, we will be dealing with a more typical monsoon pattern with potential scattered daytime storms each day and showers possible. The highs remain hot at 90s levels throughout the weekend.
