Holiday Warmth In The Low 80’s


HolidaySouth Florida is basking in the warmth of the holiday season this weekend. After some early showers in spots, Saturday features a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low 80s. A building ocean breeze could bring in a few afternoon showers and will definitely create a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches from late Saturday through the weekend. A stray shower could zip by as celebrations of Christmas Eve and the first night of Hanukkah get under way.
