Afternoon showers, heat index temperatures could top 105

Typical summertime weather has settled upon South Florida with a high pressure system sucking warm tropical air up from the south to initiate afternoon showers and high humidity.

The National Weather Service in Miami is forecasting a high of 92 degrees today in West Palm Beach, but heat index temperatures could top 105 in some interior areas and Collier County.

Showers are expected to increase late tonight to early Tuesday morning as weather forecasting models show a surge of moisture pushed onshore by easterly winds. That will increase showers in the coastal areas Tuesday morning.

Palm Beach County has seen above normal rainfall this month with nearly 4 inches falling along the coast and more than 5 inches in inland and western areas of the county.

But seasonal totals are still far below average. Since June 1, coastal Palm Beach County is still 4.56 inches below what is normal for this time of year.
