Finally Feels Like Fall!

Evening forecast

By Donna Thomas, Meteorologist, Nov. 23, 2015 – Fall weather has come late to South Florida, but it’s finally arrived this week. After morning lows in the low to mid 60s, Monday features a strong north to northeast breeze, the possibility of a quick shower, and highs in the refreshing mid 70s. Breezy conditions mean a high risk of dangerous rip currents on Monday into Tuesday.

Wednesday will see slightly warmer temperatures, with highs in the upper 70s, but the strong breeze will continue, as will the possibility of a few quick showers. Some coastal flooding is possible in low-lying areas around high tides on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Thanksgiving Day will see seasonable highs around the 80 degree mark, an ocean breeze, and maybe a quick shower. Friday will continue our stretch of breezy November weather, and highs will top out in the low 80s.
