17 straight days of 90-plus degree temperatures, when it will end

South Florida’s above-normal temperatures have persisted through July with Sunday hitting a whopping 95 degrees – five degrees above what’s typical for this time of year and near the record of 96 set in 1981.

And forecasters aren’t expecting the warm weather to subside this week, as a high pressure system continues to dominate the atmosphere.

While the normal daytime high for early to mid-July is 90-degrees, the National Weather Service in Miami said it expects the mercury to climb slightly above that through at least Friday.

Today’s high temperature in West Palm Beach is expected to reach a balmy 92 degrees with a 20 percent chance of rain. Tomorrow is forecast to be the same.

But the rain is expected to fall mostly inland as the sea breeze pushes showers past the coast.

“East coastal areas will remain fairly rain-free with the majority of activity remaining west of east coast urban areas,” National Weather Service forecasters wrote. “Little change in the weather is expected even into next weekend.”

Meanwhile, the tropics remain quiet with no systems expected in the Atlantic basin during the next five days.
