Warm and Breezy Weather Continues


South Florida is warm and breezy again on Friday as we continue our streak of warmer-than-normal days to close out 2018.  Friday features lots of clouds on the breeze along the east coast and a mix of sun and clouds along the Gulf coast.  A few showers will pass through the east coast metro area.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches on Friday, and at least a moderate rip current risk will last through the weekend along the east coast.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 80s.


Saturday will bring clouds, a few showers, and a bit of sun to the east coast metro area, while the Gulf coast will see a mix of sun and clouds again.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Sun and a few clouds are in the forecast throughout South Florida on Sunday.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 80s.

Look for a warm, mostly sunny, and breezy end to 2018 on Monday.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 80s.  New Year’s Eve will be dry and mild, with temperatures in the low to mid 70s at midnight.

New Year’s Day will be mostly sunny and dry.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 80s.
