The cool weather that made South Florida so pleasant the past few days will be back for most of this week.

Monday morning started in the upper-50s and lower 60s. Tuesday morning will be a little warmer, but still refreshing.

“It feels so nice. You can roll down the windows and enjoy that free AC,” said CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez.

After heavy rain on Friday night, the cool-down was a welcome change for the thousands of Ultra Music Fest fans. Police officials even credited the comfy climate with less trouble at the Bayfront Park site in downtown Miami.

And with children back to school, parents need to remind the little ones to “take a jacket.”

Temperatures will gradually climb through the week, with lows forecast in the mid-60s Tuesday morning and rising to 80.

As April debuts on Wednesday, the morning and evening lows will be around 70, with highs in the mid-80s. Rain possibility also will increase.

“We’re not going to be unseasonable,” said Bob Ebaugh, a National Weather Service specialist, who explained that highs in the 80s and lows in the mid-60s are typical this time of year.

“Enjoy the sunny skies, drier humidity and milder temperatures,” Ebaugh said. “Especially with what we have on the horizons, since summer is approaching.”
