We’ll Warm Up After A Chilly Start

chilly start

A slow warm-up gets under way in South Florida on Sunday, leading to a nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  In the meantime, Sunday gets off to a chilly start, but plenty of sun will moderate temperatures in the afternoon.  Highs on Sunday will be in the low 70s.

Monday morning will be on the cool side, with lows ranging from the low 50s along the Gulf coast and the interior to around 60 degrees right at the east coast.  Then we’ll see plenty of sun and a few clouds.  Monday’s highs will be in the mid 70s.  Christmas Eve will be pleasant and dry as celebrations begin and Santa makes his way to South Florida.

Christmas morning will bring lows in the 60s at most locations (a bit cooler along the Gulf coast).  Our Christmas forecast features sun, a few clouds, and just the chance of a stray shower in the evening.

Tuesday’s highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Wednesday will see some moisture return, so look for sun, clouds, and passing showers in spots.  Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 70s.

Look for clouds and passing showers on the breeze on Thursday.  Highs on Thursday will be in the low 80s.
