Unseasonably Hot But Breezy

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 5, 2015 – South Florida will be breezy on Thursday as our stretch of unseasonably hot weather continues. Thursday will feature a strong ocean breeze, a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches, the possibility of a quick shower, and highs in the upper 80s.

The breeze will taper off on Friday but the rip current risk will remain. We can’t rule out a shower or two as temperatures reach the mid to upper 80s on Friday. The weekend will feature highs mostly in the mid 80s and a few showers.

The breeze will return on Monday and Tuesday, along with some showers and our unseasonable highs in the mid to upper 80s. We’ll have to wait until at least the middle of next week to see some typical November temperatures.
