Rain Arrives In Florida Today Ahead Of A COLD Front

Tuesday features a mix of sun and clouds, which will give way to periods of showers during the afternoon and lasting through the night.  Heavy rain and localized flooding are possible, especially in northern portions of South Florida.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 70s right at the Atlantic coast and near 80 degrees everywhere else.

Wednesday will start with overnight showers and storms.  Then the day will bring sun, clouds, and a few leftover showers to the east coast metro area, while the Gulf coast will see a nice mix of sun and clouds.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 70s right at the coasts and in the low 80s elsewhere in South Florida.

Thursday will feature more clouds than sun with the chance of some afternoon showers in spots.  Thursday’s highs will be in the low 80s in the east coast metro area and near 80 degrees along the Gulf coast.

Faith Based Events

Friday will see some sun, more clouds, and periods of showers as a strong cold front moves in.  Look for breezy conditions along the Gulf coast.  Friday’s highs will be near 80 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the mid 70s along the Gulf coast — but temperatures will drop drastically after sundown.

Saturday’s forecast calls for wintry weather.  Morning lows will range from the mid 40s to the low 50s.  The day will be sunny but with a cold and sometimes gusty breeze.  Look for a chilly Christmas Eve — but Santa will feel right at home.  Highs on Saturday will be near 60 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the upper 50s along the Gulf coast.
