MIAMI (CBSMiami) – After the storms moved out this morning the cooler breeze developed. It will continue to bring in drier but much cooler air overnight leading to a chilly start to the weekend.
A northwest wind can lead to very cold temperatures here in South Florida and that will be the case for just Saturday morning. Step outside early enough and you will be in the upper 50s along the coast with slightly cooler temperatures inland. There will be a breeze making it feel even cooler despite the sunshine.
During the day Saturday, the wind starts to turn to the northeast so it will remain cool with a few passing clouds. With that northeast wind, however, temperatures will not be as cool at night and will warm up a few degrees each day. Highs will be just above 70 degrees Saturday and warm up only a few degrees Sunday.
Gusty wind will not let up until the middle of next week so the hazardous beach and boating conditions that will develop Friday night will continue until then. A small craft advisory is in effect and will continue all weekend. The rip current risk is likely to be elevated to high.
The weekend remains dry but by Monday and Tuesday, enough moisture returns to the area to put a few showers in the forecast. They will be light and move quickly from east to west with the breeze.
‘Spring Forward’ is this Sunday at 2 a.m., so remember to set your clocks forward by one hour this Saturday night.
