Seasonably Cooler As Front Passes Through


frontSouth Florida is seasonably cooler on Thursday as a front moves through. After some patchy early fog, we’ll start the day with a shower or two and lots of clouds. Then skies will clear as highs reach the upper 70s. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches.

Friday morning will be on the chilly side, with lows mostly in the 50s and a few 60 degree readings right along the coast. Then look for lots of sun and a few clouds as highs top out in the mid to upper 70s.

Saturday features a mix of sun and clouds, followed by showers and storms late in the day and into the evening as another front approaches. Saturday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Showers and some storms linger on Sunday, but the day won’t be a washout. Sunday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Presidents Day will be nicer, with good sun and a few clouds. Highs on the holiday Monday will be in the low 80s.
