Warming Up

Warming UpSouth Florida is warming up on Friday after our late-winter cold spell. Friday morning will be quite cool, but then the day will feature good sun and a few clouds to begin a warming trend. A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents remains in place at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Friday will be mostly in the upper 70s.

Saturday morning will be more mild, with lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Then we’ll be lucky to have good sun and a few clouds for St. Patrick’s Day. Saturday’s highs will be near 80 degrees.

Sunday will bring sun and some clouds as the warming trend continues. Sunday’s highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Monday. Monday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.

A front approaches on Tuesday, but ahead of it, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds with some passing showers. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 80s.
