Cool Start Today, But Real Winter Weather Is Coming To Florida

Monday features a cool start in the morning, giving way to a mix of sun and clouds in the east coast metro area and mostly sunny skies along the Gulf coast.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches.  Highs on Monday will be mostly in the upper 70s.
Tuesday will bring clouds and increasingly frequent periods of showers in the afternoon that will last through the evening.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the upper 70s right at the Atlantic coast and around the 80-degree mark everywhere else in South Florida.
Wednesday features a mix of sun and clouds.  Look for a few early storms and passing afternoon showers in spots.  Wednesday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.
Thursday will see partly sunny skies — but changes are on the way.  Thursday’s highs will be mostly in the low 80s in the east coast metro area and near 80 degrees along the Gulf coast.
Friday’s forecast calls for sun, clouds, and periods of showers on the breeze as a strong cold front moves in.  The Gulf coast will see breezy conditions.  Highs on Friday will be mostly in the upper 70s in the east coast metro area and the mid-70s along the Gulf coast — but temperatures will plummet during the evening and overnight hours, bottoming out in the mid to upper 40s by Saturday morning.
