MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Cool dry air has spread over South Florida after a reinforcing shot of cold air moved in very early Tuesday morning.

Much of the area woke up to temperatures in the lower 60s, with a breeze between 10 and 20 mph making it feel even cooler.

Temperatures were 10 degrees below the normal Tuesday afternoon with highs near 70 degrees under sunny skies.

Overnight Tuesday the wind will diminish but that will allow the temperature to get even colder over the interior while just off the coast an ocean breeze starts to develop.

The cool dry air over land meeting the milder ocean breeze off the coast may lead to a few showers developing there overnight.

There is a chance one or two of these will drift close enough to the coast to put a few showers in the forecast there.

Inland areas will wake up to temperatures in the upper 50s inland Broward and Miami-Dade while right near the coast and in the Keys, it will be in the lower 60s.

By Wednesday afternoon the ocean breeze reestablishes itself across the area pushing clouds through and possibly giving a few areas a brief shower.
