Weather alert: South Florida to heat up before weekend cool-down


Miami Herald Staff Report

In typical South Florida style, this week’s weather promises to be an experiment in extremes.

Temperatures on Tuesday will reach near-record highs at 85 degrees, only to plummet 10 degrees on Wednesday. The dip will continue into the weekend, with lows forecast in the 40s.

There is a slight chance of showers on Tuesday and a 50 percent chance of heavy rain and thunderstorms rumbling in on Wednesday.

No advisories have been reported for South Florida, but a tornado watch is in effect for Central Florida.
