Cold Front Brings Winter Weather Later Today

Winter is coming early to South Florida, thanks to a strong cold front that arrives on Tuesday.  The day starts off with early fog and some late morning showers.  Then we’ll see clearing skies and falling temperatures during the evening.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 70s — but it will reach that level in the morning.
Look for a cold night, with Wednesday morning lows ranging from the upper 40s at the Gulf coast and inland to the low 50s at the east coast.  Then we’ll see plenty of sun, even as highs top out in the mid to upper 60s on Wednesday.
Thursday morning will be cold again, with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.  Then good sun kicks in, and highs will inch into the low 70s on Thursday.
Friday morning will see temperatures about 10 degrees warmer than Thursday morning.  The warming trend continues with good sun and a few clouds on Friday.  Friday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.
We’ll feel more like South Florida on Saturday, with sun, clouds, maybe a stray shower in spots, and highs near 80 degrees.
