Today Will Be Hot Again. Cooler Weekend

Hot Again

South Florida will be hot again on Friday, but nice weather is on tap for the weekend. Friday starts with some early fog in spots and smoky skies (from a controlled burn well inland) in portions of Miami-Dade and Broward. Friday features good sun and a few clouds during much of the day, followed by more clouds and a few showers as a front approaches our area. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Friday will be in the mid to upper 80s.

But Saturday morning will be refreshing, with lows in the low to mid 60s (and a bit cooler well inland). Saturday will bring plenty of sun and a few clouds, as well as an increasing risk of rip currents at the Atlantic beaches. Saturday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.

Sunday morning will be cool, and the day will feature good sun and a few clouds. Sunday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Monday. Monday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Tuesday will bring more of the same — a mix of sun and clouds. Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 80s.
