South Florida’s first day of spring will feature warm temperatures and afternoon showers, but cold air more appropriate during winter will move in late.
The wet weekend continues acrosss South Florida today ahead of a cold front slowly moving through the state this morning. A pre-frontal trough is sitting over the area early this morning, leading to the current batch of showers and storms over the region and local waters. Expect periodic showers through the day with a few embedded lightning storms as the front makes its way into South Florida later today. The front is expected to move south of the area late this evening. Highs will be in the humid mid 80s, but cooler and drier air will move in overnight.
Monday will feel like winter, with morning lows ranging from the mid 50s inland to the low 60s at the coast. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the low 70s, even with plenty of sun.
Tuesday morning will be chilly as well, with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s, and afternoon highs will be in the mid 70s.
We’ll warm a bit on Wednesday, as highs climb into the upper 70s.
