Warm Day, Late Showers


South Florida will see another warm day on Friday, but late night showers will mark the beginning of some changes in the weather.

lateA small northeast swell will lead to a high risk of rip currents along Palm Beach County beaches today. Remember to always swim near a lifeguard!

On Friday, look for sun, clouds, and highs in the mid 80s, followed by overnight showers (and maybe a stray storm) as a weak but wet front stalls out over the area.

That will make the weekend unsettled, with periods of showers and an isolated storm or two on Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the low 80s both days, but a reinforcing front will sweep the moisture out early on Monday, leaving morning lows in the low to mid 60s.

It may be spring by the calendar, but we’ll see afternoon temperatures in the mid 70s on Monday and Tuesday — highs more typical of South Florida winter days.
