We (heart) this weather: Bright and sunny for Valentine’s Day in forecast

Friday may start on the chilly side, but the cool air won’t linger.

After South Florida temperatures dip into the 50s early — as the tail end of the cold front that slammed the South with ice and snow pushes through — the afternoon will warm up to the 70s.

“It the same system that wreaked havoc in the Southeast,” said David Ross, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade. “We had a much milder impact.”

The forecaster’s present: No rain and lots of sun for Valentine's Day and big weekend events including the Miami International Boat show and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival.

“The cold weather will be short-lived,” he said.

While Friday night could dip into the 60s, Saturday and Sunday will warm up to the 70s and 80s.

“The main concern for the weather this weekend is for people to stay hydrated,” Ross said.
