By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Jan. 2, 2016 – Rain is on the way to South Florida on Saturday, followed by significantly cooler air on Monday. But Saturday will start out warm and mostly dry, with morning lows in the 70s. Temperatures will reach the low 80s, and showers will start to move in during the afternoon, in advance of a front that will slowly work its way south.
The front will finally clear South Florida early on Monday, and we’ll see lows in the 60s followed by highs that struggle to reach the low 70s. Tuesday morning will be quite cool, with lows in the 50s and maybe a few readings in the low 60s at the coast.
A warming trend will begin on Tuesday, but moisture will return as well, so look for highs in the mid to upper 70s along with showers and clouds.
Showers will linger on Wednesday as highs reach the upper 70s. Thursday will be drier and warmer, with morning lows near 70 degrees, a few showers, and highs around the 80 degree mark.
And just how hot was 2015? According to the National Weather Service it was a record breaking year. Here’s a chart looking at the temperatures for the past 10 years for South Florida.
