heat wave

heat waveA cool change has come to South Florida on Saturday as we enjoy a break from our recent winter “heat wave.” After a pleasant start, Saturday features good sun and a few clouds on the breeze. A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches on Saturday, lasting at least through Sunday. Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 70s.

Sunday morning will be quite cool, with lows ranging from the low 50s well inland to the mid to upper 50s along the east coast. Then plenty of sun with a few clouds will kick in, and Sunday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.

Monday will bring a nice mix of sun and clouds. Monday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.

Tuesday will feature sun, clouds, and the return of a few showers. Tuesday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Look for some passing showers on Wednesday as another front approaches. Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 70s.
