MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The temperatures will rise and fall, then rise again this week across South Florida.
A cold front will dramatically change the forecast. The temperature change from Monday to Tuesday will be roughly 25-30 degrees.
The front is still across the mid-section of the U.S. and is bringing bitter cold to the Upper Midwest and Ohio River Valley. In the Upper Midwest, temperatures will only be in the negatives with wind chill values near the 40s and 50s below zero.
That cold air will influence South Florida’s forecast late Monday night into Tuesday morning. However, in the meantime, the temperatures will be quite warm.
Sunday afternoon, highs will reach the lower 80s and it will be slightly humid with winds out of the south at 10-15 mph. A few spotty showers are possible across the area.
The rain will not be as widespread across the Florida Keys on Sunday as it was Saturday. Saturday, Key West International Airport recorded 4.13 inches of rainfall shattering an old record of 1.52 inches set back in 1915.
Sunday night, temperatures will be in the lower 70s with a southerly wind. Ahead of the cold front temperatures will be in the lower 80s for Monday with showers developing late in the day.
When the front slides across South Florida Monday night and by Tuesday morning it will be sweater weather. Temperatures Tuesday morning will be in the middle 40s. Highs Tuesday will only reach the lower to middle 60s. The warm up begins quickly afterwards with highs by Friday back in the lower 80s.
