MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A cold front came through South Florida Monday morning. And although the afternoon was unseasonably warm, the overnight lows will be much colder.
As the front passed through South Florida, there were a few fast-moving showers and a gusty breeze. That cool breeze will turn from the southwest to the northwest and drive in the colder air mass. Temperatures will fall into the 60s later Monday evening then dip into the 50s and 40s by Tuesday morning.
So how low will the temperature go? For coastal cities, expect the low 50s and for the west and inland cities expect the 40s.
There will be a noticeable breeze early Tuesday but wind chills will only be a few degrees colder and will stay in the middle 40s.
The sun comes up this time of year just before 7 a.m. so the chill will be around as most of you step outside. By the afternoon the breeze continues to bring in cooler air so despite plenty of sunshine, highs will stay just below 70 degrees.
Wednesday morning will be just as cold but not as windy so it may feel a little better. By the afternoon temperatures will be getting a little warmer and most of the area should be able to push above 70 degrees.
Through at least Thursday, morning lows will be in the 50s and the afternoon temperatures will remain in the 70s with sunshine each day.
By Friday and the weekend warmer air returns along with a few more clouds but we should stay mainly dry each day.
This cold front is associated with the same winter storm that has caused major travel interruptions and delays in the Midwest and Northeast over the holiday weekend. More snow is expected for the Northeast Monday through Tuesday.
