Fall Is Still Weeks Away For South Florida

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Are you ready for some cooler weather and drier days in South Florida?

The autumnal equinox for the Northern Hemisphere happens Sunday, September 22 at 4:44 p.m. ET.

That means fall is here.

However, while much of the country starts to experience cold fronts that decrease humidity and bring rainfall, not to mention cooler air behind them, South Florida will stay humid, a little stormy and yes, hot.

Typically, South Florida will not feel cooler air from cold fronts until late October or early November.

Here is a list of dates some South Florida cities average their first temperatures of 60 degrees or lower according to the National Weather Service in Miami.

– Homestead/Redland, October 28

– West Palm Beach, November 2

– Ft. Lauderdale, November 4

– Miami, November 7

– Miami Beach, November 17

Just because these are average dates for cooler temperatures, doesn’t mean South Florida could get lucky and get an early season front.

However, don’t expect it because the region remains in the rainy season for most of October.
