Sunny, Breezy, Chilly Day

It feels like South Florida’s version of winter on Thursday after a cold front came through.  After a chilly start, the day features sunny skies and a cool breeze.  A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Gulf beaches and also at the Palm Beach County coast.  Highs on Thursday will be near 70 degrees right along the Atlantic coast and the upper 60s elsewhere.

Friday morning will be on the cold side, with lows ranging from the mid 40s along the Gulf coast and in the interior to the mid 50s right along the Atlantic coast.  The day will bring good sun and some clouds.  An increasing risk of dangerous rip currents will develop at the Atlantic beaches on Friday and last into the weekend.  Friday’s highs will be in the low to mid 70s.

Saturday morning lows will be in the seasonable low to mid 60s.  The day will start with good sun, but then clouds and some east coast showers move in.  Saturday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.

Sun, clouds, and showers are in the forecast for Sunday as a weak front approaches.  Sunday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Look for lots of sun and a few clouds on Monday.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid 70s.
