Ahh, Breezy and Seasonably Cool

Evening forecast

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 24, 2015 – South Florida will be breezy and seasonably cool on Tuesday, with a few quick showers thrown into the mix. After morning lows ranging from near 60 degrees to near 70 at the coast, we’ll see a strong and occasionally gusty ocean breeze bringing in a quick shower or two and creating a high risk of dangerous rip currents which will last through the holiday weekend. Tuesday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 70s.

Wednesday will be breezy, and we could see a few more of those quick showers move through. Morning temperatures will range from the mid 60s to the low 70s, and Wednesday’s highs will be near the 80 degree mark. Some minor flooding in low-lying coastal areas is possible near high tides on Wednesday and Thursday.

Thanksgiving Day will feature an ocean breeze, a few quick showers in spots, and highs in the low 80s.

Friday will bring more breezy and seasonable weather, with highs in the low 80s and a few showers in the forecast. The weekend will continue the breezy trend, and highs will be in the low 80s.
