Enjoy The Cool Autumn Weather

Autumn has finally arrived in South Florida on Sunday, and we’ll see the pleasant weather for a few days.  Sunday starts with a refreshing morning, and we’ll see plenty of sun and a cool breeze as the day progresses.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at South Florida beaches along both coasts.  Highs on Sunday will be around the 80 degree mark.
Monday morning will be cool, with lows ranging from the upper 50s in the west to the mid 60s right at the Atlantic coast.  Then we’ll see another dry day with lots of sun and a few clouds on the breeze.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s.
Tuesday will continue our trend of pleasant weather, with a mix of sun and clouds and just the chance of a shower.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 80s.
Wednesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds and a mostly dry evening for Halloween trick-or-treating.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the low to mid 80s.
Look for some showers on Thursday as moisture increases in advance of another front.  Highs on Thursday will be in the mid 80s.
In the tropics, Oscar is now a tropical storm and is expected to reach hurricane strength shortly.  At 5 am Sunday, Oscar was located near 25.0 North, 52.6 West, and was moving southwest at 15 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour.  The forecast calls for Oscar to turn to the northeast on Monday, well to the east of land.
