South Florida will feel a bit more wintry later this week.
Brisk temperatures will arrive Tuesday night as a harsh cold front travels across part of the Midwest and the Northeast.
This blast of cold weather “will help to bring in more moisture and more active weather to Miami,” said meteorologist David Ross of the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade.
Ross says that could mean thunderstorms, especially in the afternoons. South Florida can expect showers Monday and Tuesday before the cool spell rolls in.

Miami-Dade County temperatures could dip into the mid-50s overnight Tuesday and early Wednesday before rising to the mid-70s.
But Ross says this cold front will not feel as chilly as two weeks ago when temperatures hit a record low.
“It is going to push through the area, but we should have warmer temperatures back by Thursday,” Ross said.
The cold weather will be forgotten by next weekend as the forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with highs around 80.
