MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Enjoy the warmth while it lasts because after Tuesday, a series of cold fronts will move through the area to bring South Florida a longer stretch of “winter” weather all the way through the weekend.
But before we cool down, we will see the clouds increase and some scattered showers develop later Tuesday and into Wednesday as the first cold front slides down the state. At the same time, there wil be a slight dip in temperatures with inland areas in the low 60’s and coastal areas in the upper 60’s.
Wednesday, highs will be about 10 degrees cooler in the afternoon, only making it into the low 70’s. Wednesday night, the second cold front will move through with even colder and drier air behind it. Lows behind the second front will fall into the 50’s.
As northerly winds build in behind the second front, the wind chill will make it feel more like it’s in the 40’s Thursday morning. Temperatures on Thursday will struggle to get into the low 60’s despite sunny skies.
Thursday night, the mercury will plunge thanks to clearer skies. Lows will dip into the mid 40’s across the area and may even reach the 30’s across some inland areas. Wind chills across South Florida may be in the 30’s Friday morning.
The temperature should rebound into the upper 60’s by Friday afternoon before a third cold front pushes through the area into Saturday morning. Lows will not be as cold, but still cooler with low 50’s and upper 40’s.
Saturday, highs will be in the upper 60’s again and by Sunday, a slightly milder trend will be underway with highs in the low 70’s.
