The high temperature will be close to 90 inland on Sunday. It will be cooler at the coast by 5-10 degrees. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny. Sunday night looks warm and humid, with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Very warm weather continues through most or all of next workweek. Highs will be near 90 inland on Monday and Tuesday. The early outlook is for it to be even warmer Wednesday and Thursday. The coast will be several degrees cooler each day. It may not be oppressively humid, but you’ll notice some mugginess. Lows will be in the upper 60s. Skies look partly cloudy to mainly clear through the middle of the week.

There is a lot of uncertainty about the intensity forecast for Tropical Storm Erika. As of Thursday evening, the forecast was for it to stay a tropical storm as it passes through the Caribbean and nears South Florida by late in the weekend. It may become a hurricane near the Florida east coast early next week.
