Sunny But Chilly Weather Returns

Chilly Weather

Chilly WeatherWinter’s chilly weather is back in South Florida beginning today, and it will hang around for a few days. After a cool morning with lows mostly in the upper 50s, Wednesday features plenty of sun and a few clouds. But it won’t be enough to warm us up beyond the low 70s.


Chilly WeatherThursday morning will be chilly, with lows in the low 50s at the coast and in the upper 40s inland. The wind will make it feel about 5 degrees colder. Lots of sun and a few clouds will be around on Thursday, but highs will top out in the low 70s again.

Friday morning will see lows in the 50s again. The day will be fine for St. Patrick’s Day festivities, with lots of sun and a few clouds on an ocean breeze. That breeze will lead to an increasing risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches on Friday and Saturday. Highs on Friday will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Saturday will bring a mix of sun and clouds, with maybe a shower on the ocean breeze. Highs on Saturday will be near the 80 degree mark.
