MIAMI (CBS4) — After a gloomy and wet Wednesday, the sun is back and so is the sweater weather. The cold front that spawned severe weather and strong storms across most of Florida on Wednesday has dropped to the South and temperatures plummeted overnight with a few inland areas waking up to the upper 40s, near the coast low 50s. A few clouds prevented the temperatures from dropping even further.
The winds have shifted out of the North and Northwest helping to transport the colder, drier air. Although it is a bit chilly across South Florida Thursday morning, the afternoon highs will climb into the upper 60s and low 70s, according to CBS4 Meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez.
Thursday night into Friday morning could be even chillier because the colder air will really settle in and skies will be clearer. Some inland locations may dip down to the low 40s, and into the upper 40s near the coast.
Friday afternoon will be similar with tons of sun and highs in the low 70s. The beautiful weather rolls onto into the weekend with chilly overnight lows and mild afternoons with highs in the low 70s on Saturday, upper 70s on Sunday.
