Feeling Like December Today


South Florida is feeling like December on Thursday as cold air is in place.  After a chilly start, Thursday features plenty of sun and a few clouds on the breeze.  Highs on Thursday will be in the mid 70s.

Friday morning will be cool but more comfortable, with lows ranging from the mid 50s at the Gulf coast and in the interior to the mid to upper 60s along the east coast.  The day will bring sun, clouds, and maybe an east coast shower as an ocean breeze develops.  Friday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.

Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds, and ocean breezes will lead to an elevated risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.  Saturday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Look for some sun, clouds, and periods of showers on Sunday as another front approaches.  Sunday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

Monday’s forecast includes clouds and lingering showers.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid 70s.
