South Florida is in for a mixed bag of weather as we head into the big holiday weekend which includes a major drop in degrees.
The sun may be shining brightly outside, but there’s a definite chill in the air across South Florida. The cooler weather is likely to hang around throughout the rest of the weekend.
If you look outside your window you’ll see evidence that a cool change is on the way.
After a record streak of 80 degree January weather, South Florida temperatures are finally feeling more winter-like.
With highs expected to be near 85 on Thursday, this will cap off a 16 day stretch with temperatures 80 and above which is a record streak for January.
Winter officially kicked off Friday morning at 6:12 a.m. with the Winter Solstice and it will feel more like winter South Florida style later in the day and into the weekend due to a strong cold front moving through.
Christmas may be just around the corner but South Florida is still sweating it out Thursday with warm temperatures and lots of sun but that’s all about to change. The Midwest blizzard is about to send a strong cold front across the state.
South Florida boaters are being reminded to slow down for migrating manatees.
Three men who were injured by a lightning strike during an intense South Florida storm continue to recover Saturday.
Violent lightning strikes that sent at least 2 people to the hospital and lightning the size of golf balls marked a series of violent thunderstorms that swept South Florida from Palm Beach County to Homestead Friday. More storms are possible as the sun sets, but forecasters predict the worst is ending.
