South Florida will finally feel like fall on Sunday. Look for sun, clouds and maybe a shower on the ocean breeze along the east coast, and highs in the pleasant mid to upper 80s in Miami-Dade, Broward, and the Keys, and in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast. The risk of dangerous rip currents will be in the moderate to high range on Sunday.

fallMonday will bring morning lows in the low to mid 70s in most of South Florida, with lows dropping to the upper 60s in Naples and Marco Island. The day features sun, clouds, a few east coast showers on the breeze, and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Tuesday will continue our trend of slightly cooler mornings, sun and clouds, a few quick showers, and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Some moisture returns on Wednesday, but it won’t be a washout, with passing showers at times, periods of sun, and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
