Bundle Up – Very Cold Blast Coming To Florida

Friday starts with patchy to dense fog.  Then the day features lots of clouds and passing showers on a gusty breeze as a strong front moves into South Florida.  A high risk of rip currents is in place at the Gulf beaches, and there’s a moderate rip current risk along the Palm Beach County coast.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 70s in the east coast metro area and the low 70s along the Gulf coast.

Saturday morning will be on the chilly side, with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.  The day will be sunny but windy.  Expect a high risk of dangerous rip currents at South Florida’s beaches this weekend (but it will be too cold to enjoy the beach anyway).  Saturday’s highs will top out in the upper 50s in most locations, with a few spots reaching 60 degrees.

Sunday morning will be bitterly cold, with lows in the mid to upper 30s.  Expect wind chills below freezing in the morning hours, and frost will be possible in the interior.  Make sure to protect pets and delicate plants from the cold.  We’ll see lots of sun but not much of a warmup.  Sunday’s highs will barely make it into the low 60s.

Monday morning will be cold once again, with lows in the 40s.  The day will feature lots of sun.  Monday’s highs will be in the upper 60s.

Tuesday’s forecast calls for morning lows in the low to mid-50s.  Then we’ll see a nice mix of sun and clouds as the slow warmup continues.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid-70s.
