Cool, sunny day for Martin Luther King Jr. Day events

South Florida’s weather should be nice and sunny as people across South Florida honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy on Monday.

According to the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade, temperatures should be in the low to mid-50s in the morning and warm up to the mid-70s.

“It should be a really pleasant day for any outdoor activities,” said meteorologist Kim Brabander.

On Sunday, the temperature barely reached 70 in the afternoon.

The recent wintry blast is a product of several fronts that have drifted south. And while there is a warming trend, it’s not going to last long.

Meteorologist Robert Molleda said that by Wednesday, another front is forecast to hit South Florida, sending temperatures dropping once again.

“It shouldn’t be as cold as it was, but it’s still going to be colder than normal,” he said.
