Cool Day But Warm Hearts Around Florida Today

Valentine’s Day features a chilly morning and cooler than normal daytime temperatures, even with lots of sun.  A brisk and gusty breeze is in place, and so is a high risk of dangerous rip currents at all South Florida beaches.  Highs on Monday will be in the low 70s in the east coast metro area and the upper 60s along the Gulf coast.
