The cold blast is short-lived since another low pressure system in the Gulf will quickly move eastward into the Sunshine State throughout Tuesday and that will move in warmer and more humid air to South Florida.
The highs on Tuesday will top the upper 70s with the chance for rain increasing throughout the day. Showers are expected in the area late Tuesday night and possibly during Wednesday morning.
A cold front associated with the new low pressure system is expected to clear South Florida by Wednesday afternoon.
The weather pattern will quickly dry out behind the cold front and become windy. Windy conditions are expected to last through the start of the new weekend with another cool down.MORE NEWS: Coral Gables resident says city's automatic license plate recognition cameras are a constitutional violation
