Clearing Skies, Cooler Temperatures

Cooler Temperatures

South Florida will see gradually clearing skies and cooler temperatures on Monday. With the cold front that made the evening hours stormy now well to our south, Monday features more sun and fewer clouds on the breeze. A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at both the Gulf beaches, and the rip current risk is elevated along the east coast. Highs on Monday will be near 80 degrees — a nice change from last few days.

Tuesday morning will be cool, with lows in the low 60s right at the east coast and in the 50s elsewhere. The day will bring good sun and a few clouds. Tuesday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Wednesday will continue the trend of mostly sunny weather. Wednesday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Look for plenty of sun and a few clouds again on Thursday. Thursday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Friday’s forecast includes good sun, a few clouds, and maybe a shower in spots. Highs on Friday will be in the mid 80s.
