The Thanksgiving holiday weekend has gotten off to a messy and wet start Wednesday across much of South Florida. The rain is in front of a strong cold front that will usher in a steep drop in the temperature Wednesday night.
The coldest morning in quite a while across South Florida saw much of the area in the low to mid-40’s.
South Florida woke up to much cooler air Tuesday morning after a cold front passed through the area overnight. But the mercury hasn’t finished dropping as winter takes one more shot at the area over the next 48 hours.

Keep the jackets handy. It was a very chilly start across South Florida Wednesday with some inland locations dropping down to the mid to upper 30s, while the coast hit the low 40s.
