Front Moves In Bringing Cool Autumn Weather

Autumn (South Florida style) is on the way as a front arrives on Saturday.  The front moves in during the morning, and we’ll see sun, clouds, maybe a shower — but the cool down will come later.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Gulf beaches and along the Palm Beach County coast.  Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 80s along the Gulf coast and the upper 80s elsewhere.
We’ll notice the change on Sunday morning, as lows dip into the 60s.  The day will bring good sun, a few clouds on the breeze, and highs in the low 80s.
Monday will start off on the cool side, with morning lows ranging from near 60 degrees to the mid 60s.  Then we’ll enjoy another mostly sunny day.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s.
Tuesday will feature a cool morning, a mix of sun and clouds, and highs in the low 80s.
Wednesday’s forecast includes sun, clouds, and a nice night for Halloween festivities.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the low to mid 80s.
Subtropical Storm Oscar

In the tropics, we now have Subtropical Storm Oscar in the central Atlantic.  At 5 am Saturday, Oscar was located near 27.3 North, 47.0 West, and was moving west-northwest at 12 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour.  Oscar will move generally westward for a couple of days.  Then computer models are in agreement that it will turn northeastward well to the east of Bermuda, remaining in the open Atlantic.
