New Year’s revelers may have to hold on to their party hats with gusts as high as 20 mph whipping across South Florida Monday night and Tuesday.
The easterly winds are raising the risk of rip currents along the coast, according to the National Weather Service.
On New Year’s Eve, partyers can expect lows in the mid-60s. Tuesday, New Year’s Day, will see sun and a high temperature near 77, with lows overnight around 67 with partly cloudy skies.
For the rest of the week, highs are expected near 80 with a chance of thunderstorms on Thursday night and Friday.
