Wait, Florida is in the 50s and 60s?

Yup!

Miami is waking up to the upper-60s early Tuesday and Bradenton is a bone-chilling 60. Orlando is in the 50s and Jacksonville is in the 40s.

Even in the warmer Keys, it’s a cool 73.

“Natural air-conditioning provided by Mother Nature,” said Lissette Gonzalez, meteorologist for Miami Herald news partner CBS4.

Well, not for long.

It’ll heat up this afternoon to the mid-80s. But it’ll stay dry for a couple of days, and that also means less humidity.

And there will be lots of sun.

“We will likely be rain-free throughout the day,” Gonzalez said.

(Note to boss: OK if I run a few errands this afternoon outside of the office?”)

At night, it’ll dip back to the 60s and 70s Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Wednesday will be a repeat of Tuesday, but just a tad warmer.

Compare this glorious change to Monday, when the air outside felt like your grandmother’s mushroom soup.

Thursday is a pivot day, with some rain expected, according to the National Weather Service.

Then reality is back. Friday will bring a 60 percent chance of rain.

But then forecasters expect it to be drier once again over the holiday weekend for the celebrations of Passover and Easter.
