Fall-Like Front Finally Arrives

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct. 12, 2015 – South Florida has been waiting, but the weak front bringing fall-like weather finally arrives on Monday. Look for just a chance of a quick shower Monday morning as the weak front creeps through the area, bringing sun and clouds, lower humidity, and highs in the mid to upper 80s. We’ll feel the difference on Tuesday, with morning lows in the low 70s, highs in the mid 80s, and pleasant sun. Look for sun, clouds, and highs mostly in the mid 80s on Wednesday and Thursday. Moisture will work its way in on Friday, and a few showers are in the forecast, along with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Rain chances will be on the rise for the weekend.
