Delightfully Springlike Weekend But Beware Of Fire Danger


South Florida will enjoy a delightfully springlike weekend, and the pleasant weather will last several more days. After a mild morning, look for lots of sun, a few clouds, and highs mostly in the upper 70s.

delightfully Sunday morning will be cool, with lows in the low to mid 60s, and the day will feature plenty of sun, some clouds on a building breeze, and highs in the upper 70s.

Monday will be breezy with sun and clouds, a pattern that will last at least through Wednesday. Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s, and we’ll see afternoon temperatures gradually rise into the mid 80s by midweek.

Some showers return on Thursday, when highs will top off in the mid 80s.

Faith Based Events

delightfully The Florida Forest Service (FFS) has indicated that today will be VERY HIGH on the FFS Fire Danger Index for portions of south Florida. With relative humidity forecast to drop into the low to mid 30 percent range, people should be aware that weather conditions are conducive for the ignition and spread of wildfires. People with outdoor burning plans should consider delaying those plans for a safer day.
