MIAMI (CBSMiami) – You’ve asked for it–and after weeks of waiting–the CBS4 meteorologists can now deliver. If you have been eyeing a heavier jacket or some boots, now might be the time to get them out and dust them off.
Although, you won’t need them too long in South Florida.
A serious cold front will move into South Florida early next week and bring with it some of the coldest air of the season. But first, some showers are possible for the weekend.
A lot of moisture is moving across the Gulf of Mexico and some of it will move over South Florida for Saturday bringing rainfall by the afternoon for parts of the region.
Highs Saturday will be in the uppers 70s. If you have Saturday night plans, be sure to keep an umbrella in your bag or car because you might get caught in a shower or two. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s for most of the area.
For Sunday, just spotty showers with partly sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s.
The cold front arrives Monday bringing a chance of showers, maybe a thunderstorm, but definitely colder air by Tuesday morning.
South Florida may wake up to temperatures Tuesday in the middle 40s. Areas around Lake Okeechobee and the western counties in South Florida will possibly see frost or even freeze conditions with temperatures flirting with the 30s. It won’t be quite as cold for Southeast Florida, but it will definitely be, by our standards, cold. Highs on Tuesday will struggle to reach the lower 60s.
Cooler air stays around a couple days and then, as usual, a warm up takes place once again back to seasonal temperatures.
