If the air stays warm enough through Sunday, it could set a record for the longest streak of consecutive days that temperatures have stayed at or above 60 degrees in Miami.
The streak could extend to 280 days, setting a record for temperatures kept by the National Weather Service at Miami International Airport. But brace yourself, South Florida. Winter is coming — or at least a few days of milder temperatures after the end of the warmest year on record.
Temperatures are expected to dip into the low 60s Sunday night as showers roll through Miami-Dade. Then cooler air will continue through Monday night, when there’s a chance the temperatures could reach as low as the upper 50s.
“We’re finally getting a cold front to push into the area,” National Weather Service forecaster Steven Ippoliti said. “And that’s going to temporarily bring some cooler weather down.”
Never miss a local story.
Ippoliti said the winds are shifting and coming in from the north for a few days before another shift will bring warmer air back later this week, starting Tuesday.
Near the ocean, temperatures will be a few degrees warmer .
There’s an 80 percent chance of showers Sunday evening, with a low of 64 degrees. Forecasters predict a mostly cloudy Monday, with a chance of rain and a high of 70 degrees before the air cools to low 60s and possibly upper 50s Monday night.
Starting Tuesday, warmer air will blow in from the east. By the weekend, temperatures could reach closer to 80 degrees again.
