Today Is Warm But The Big Chill Is Coming To Florida

Thursday starts with fog in the suburban portions of the east coast metro area and in the interior.  Then the day features a mix of sun and clouds with a shower or two in spots.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains along the Palm Beach County coast, and there’s a moderate rip current risk along the Gulf coast and at the beaches of Broward and Miami-Dade.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 80s near the Atlantic coast, the mid-80s elsewhere in the east coast metro area, and near 80 degrees along the Gulf coast.

Friday will bring partly sunny skies and periods of showers.  Look for a building breeze along the Gulf coast as a strong cold front moves in.  Friday’s highs will be mostly in the low 80s in the east coast metro area and in the mid-70s along the Gulf coast — but don’t let that fool you.  Temperatures will drop off sharply during the evening, falling into the 40s by early Saturday.

Saturday will be off to a cold start with lows in the 40s.  The day will feature good sun, a few clouds at times, and a chilly breeze.  Saturday’s highs will only reach the upper 50s in the east coast metro area and the mid-50s along the Gulf coast — and Christmas Eve will be cloudy and cold.

Christmas Day will begin with another cold morning, featuring lows from near 40 degrees to the mid-40s.  The day will be cloudy with periods of showers, and it will be breezy near the Gulf coast.  Sunday’s highs will only reach the mid-50s — so enjoy the day indoors with family and friends.

Monday’s forecast calls for a chilly morning, with lows ranging from the mid-40s to the low 50s.  We’ll see a mix of sun, clouds, and showers during the day.  Look for breezy conditions near the Gulf coast.  Highs on Monday will be in the mid-60s in the east coast metro area and the low-60s along the Gulf coast.
