If Sunday’s record-breaking weather was a bit too cold for you, don’t sweat: It’s getting warmer soon.

By mid-week, winds are expected to die down and the temperature should climb back to the upper-70s to lower-80s.

“It’s a quick blast of cold weather,” said David Ross, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade.

The cool snap on Saturday night and Sunday morning can be blamed on a cold-front that swept through the region, ushering in brisk breezes from the northwest, Ross said.

In Miami, the temperature dropped to 52 degrees overnight, which broke the daily record of 54, set in 1993.

The normal low temperature for Nov. 2 is 70 degrees, 18 degrees warmer, Ross said. Overnight Sunday and Monday morning will be warmer, with the low-60s.

Monday will stay breezy, with highs expected in the low-70s.

Ross said as the winds dissipate, South Florida’s weather should get back to normal in a couple days.
