Warm and Breezy for Presidents Day

Presidents day

South Florida is warm and breezy for Presidents Day, but some showers could put a damper on outdoor fun. After morning lows in the pleasant upper 60s, look for sun, clouds and afternoon showers on a strong breeze, a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the beaches, and highs in the upper 70s.

Presidents dayShowers will linger Monday night and early Tuesday before they finally clear out during the afternoon. Tuesday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Wednesday will be a bit cooler, with afternoon temperatures in the mid 70s, and the rest of the workweek will be similarly seasonable, with lows in the mid 60s, afternoon temperatures in the mid to upper 70s, and lots of sun.
