Santa Needs To Bring Cooler Temperatures

Santa is too warm

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Dec. 24, 2015 – South Florida will greet Santa with near record warmth this Christmas Eve. After a warm and mostly dry morning, we’ll see sun, clouds on a strong ocean breeze, a high risk of dangerous rip currents (that will last through the weekend), maybe a quick shower in the late afternoon, and highs in the mid 80s, with the possibility of breaking December 25th records in some locations.

Temperatures will be in the tropical upper 70s this evening, and a quick shower is possible in spots.

That will be the forecast through the weekend and for Monday and Tuesday, so our stretch of tropical warmth will stick around.
