South Florida will celebrate NYE night under mostly clear skies and with warm and muggy feels. It’ll be in the lower 70s when it’s time to ring in the new year at midnight.
The rain chance remains low through much of the weekend but since the wind flow is turning out southwesterly, moisture is enhancing the humidity levels in South Florida.
On Saturday, the first day of the year is expected to remain mainly dry but muggy with highs in the mid-80s with a gusty south breeze.
