Unseasonably Warm Today But Fall Temps Over The Weekend

By Donna Thomas, SouthFloridaReporter.com Meteorologist, Nov. 13, 2015 – South Florida will still be unseasonably warm on Friday, but fall-like temperatures are on the way this weekend. After some overnight showers and early morning fog on Friday, look for some sun, passing showers during the afternoon and evening, and highs in the mid 80s.

A front moves in on Saturday, leaving some showers as bringing relief from record temperatures. Breezes will build, along with the risk of dangerous rip currents, and highs will reach the low 80s. Sunday will be quite breezy, and highs will top out in the upper 70s as showers linger. Breezy showers are in the forecast for the first part of the workweek, and afternoon highs will gradually creep upward from Monday’s low 80s to the mid 80s on Wednesday.
