If 86 degrees was hot enough for you, this weekend can’t come soon enough.
A few days after that record-setter in Fort Lauderdale, a cold front is heading our way. And by Saturday night and early Sunday, South Florida lows will dip into the mid-40s with a wind chill that could make it feel in the 30s.
Can you say brr?
With lots of outside activities to choose this Presidents’ Day Weekend, including the boat show and Coconut Grove arts fest, we’ll certainly feel that chill as we lurch from one extreme to the other.
“It’s definitely better to get that kind of a [chilly] day than a total washout with thunderstorms,” said Robert Molleda, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade.
Before the coldest temperatures arrive, South Florida will get some rain Friday, he said. Skies should clear by Saturday, with a 20 percent chance of rain, in anticipation of the temperature drop Saturday night and Sunday.
Right around sunrise Sunday, Molleda said temperatures will be in the lower to mid-40s, but with 10 to 15 mph winds, it could feel more like upper 30s.
