It will be a dry and muggy start to the day at the beaches. Stay weather aware this afternoon/ evening for AM + PM storms containing lightning. Rain chances peak around 60%. There is a high rip current risk at all east coast beaches through at least this evening. Surf is in the 1-2' in a Northeast swell.
It will be another hot and humid day with feels like temperatures in the triple digits. Stay hydrated and take breaks inside the a/c. Best chance for rain between 3pm-8pm. Heavy rain and lightning will be likely.
Daily storm chances are on the rise for the rest of the week. A front sinking south into Florida will keep tropical moisture elevated across the Florida peninsula. Keep you umbrella handy this week. Late weekend brings lower rain chances with that trend continuing through next week.
Tropical Storm FIONA is located over the distant Atlantic and will bring impacts to the Northern Caribbean Islands on it's current forecast track. Increasing winds and big tropical rains will overspread the islands this weekend.
Our EXCLUSIVE FOX MODEL is very much inline with the current FIONA forecast from the NHC. Long term tracking takes FIONA at moderate tropical storm intensity (winds at 60-65mph) across Puerto Rico this weekend and near the Dominican Republic by late weekend into early next week. From there our FOX MODEL takes the system closer to the Bahamas-Southeast of Florida.
Most of the Hurricane models take the system through the Southern Bahamas and East of Florida.
You can depend on the FOX 35 STORM TEAM when it comes to tracking the tropics. Our FOX MODEL updates through the day and as those updates come in, we will share the latest with you!
