South Florida cools down — but warmer weather on the way

Sunday’s weather may have been a breath of fresh air, but the cooler climate won’t stick around for long.

By Tuesday, South Florida’s weather will likely be summer-like again — with temperatures rising into the low-90s, according to the National Weather Service.

“This is a minor respite from the warm weather we have been experiencing,” said Bob Ebaugh, a weather specialist with the National Weather Service.

The quick blast was the result of an “early season” cold front that swept through Florida, Ebaugh said.

Rain on Saturday night preceded the front.

On Sunday, South Florida woke up to 70 degrees, with highs reaching the mid-80s. Forecasters expected the temperature to be in the low to mid-70s Monday morning and gradually get warmer.

The rain chance also is expected to increase by Tuesday, with a 40 percent chance.
