A mix of heat & possible downpours
A lingering frontal boundary over Lake Okeechobee will bring mostly cloudy skies with possible thunderstorms on Saturday. As it sticks around South Florida this weekend, keep your umbrella handy as downpours are possible. By next week, we'll have the more typical summertime pattern of sizzling heat with passing afternoon showers and thunderstorms .

Tropical Storm Dorian is losing speed as it tracks to the West in the Atlantic. For this system to maintain strengthen, it would have to overcome a big patch of dry air and strong upper level winds on Saturday afternoon. But, the forecast models are showing those chances are slim. The possibilities of the storm being downgraded to a depression are likely this weekend.
