The good news: Blue skies, ocean breeze and mild temperatures will carry over from Sunday into the workweek.

The bad news: You may be inside most of the day, back at work and school.

So here’s what you will miss: Partly cloudy days with a breeze, with highs in the mid-70s and lows in the mid-to-upper-60s through Tuesday. On Wednesday and Thursday, South Florida will turn warmer, with highs in the low-80s and lows around 70.

The windy conditions —gusts are expected to be as high as 25-30 mph all week — are making conditions rough for swimmers. A rip current advisory is in effect for Miami-Dade and Broward beaches through Wednesday evening, according to the National Weather Service.
