Pleasant End to October

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Oct 30, 2015 – South Florida will see some pleasant and mostly dry weather as October comes to an end. On Friday, look for sun and clouds, just a few quick showers, and highs in the mid to upper 80s as a weak front clears our area.

Saturday will be a nice day with gentle ocean breezes, maybe a shower in spots, and highs in the mid 80s. Halloween night will be pleasantly spooky, with evening temperatures in the upper 70s and maybe a sneaky shower.

Standard time begins early Sunday morning, so set your clocks back one hour for a little extra sleep. November begins with a mostly dry Sunday, with highs in the mid 80s. The forecast for the first half of the workweek features sun, clouds, a few quick showers on an ocean breeze, and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
