You won’t need your scarves much longer as South Florida temperatures are expected to climb back into the 80s, meteorologists say.

Monday night will be the chilliest, according to the National Weather Service, with temperatures in the lower 60s. By Tuesday afternoon, South Florida will see temperatures head into the mid-70s.

“It will get warmer but it will be breezy and windy at times,” said forecaster Anthony Reynes, adding that winds will range from 15 mph to 20 mph.

By Wednesday, afternoon highs are expected to reach the 80s.

“At least we’ll have no rain,” Reynes said. “It will be pretty nice outside.”

Temperatures dropped to the low 50s, but some South Floridians decided to relax on the beach in this December file video.
