South Florida will see more rain and stormy weather on Thursday, but cooler and more tranquil days are ahead.

The rough weather will continue until an approaching cold front finally clears the area during the late afternoon or early evening.

Then Friday morning lows will drop into the upper 50s to low 60s, with afternoon highs topping out in the low 70s on a much drier day.

Saturday morning will be chilly, with lows in the 50s, but highs will reach the mid 70s on a pleasant afternoon.

Sunday will see a few more clouds and highs in the mid to upper 70s. We’ll see moisture, showers, and highs around the 80 degree mark return on Monday.
