Winter Weather For Florida Today

Saturday starts with a real winter blast — lows in the 40s, but feeling even colder with the wind chill.  There’s a wind chill advisory for the Gulf coast, the interior, and the extreme western suburbs of Broward and Palm Beach counties.  The day features a mix of sun and clouds and a chilly breeze.  It’s fortunate that this isn’t a beach day, because a high risk of dangerous rip currents remains along the Palm Beach County coast and at the Gulf beaches, and there’s a moderate rip current risk at the beaches of Miami-Dade and Broward.  Christmas Eve will be cold and cloudy — but that won’t stop Santa from visiting.  Highs on Saturday will be near 60 degrees in the east coast metro area and in the mid-50s along the Gulf coast.

Christmas will bring a very cold morning, with lows in the upper 30s to the low 40s — but with wind chills in the 30s.  The day will be cloudy with a few east coast showers at times — so stay indoors and keep warm.  Sunday’s highs will top out in the upper 50s in the east coast metro area and the mid-50s along the Gulf coast — not a record-breaker, but too close for comfort.

Monday will feature another cold start, with lows in the 40s.  The day will see more clouds than sun, and a few showers will pop up in the east coast metro area.  Monday’s highs will be in the mid-60s in the east coast metro area and the low-60s along the Gulf coast.

Tuesday will start with morning lows ranging from the upper 40s to the mid-50s.  The day will feature sun, clouds, and some passing east coast showers.  Tuesday’s highs will be in the low 70s in the east coast metro area and the upper 60s along the Gulf coast.

Wednesday’s forecast calls for plenty of sun and a few clouds as the slow warming trend continues.  Highs on Wednesday will be mostly in the upper 70s.
