Dreary skies and rain are in the forecast once again Friday, but weather in South Florida is looking on the bright side this weekend.

The best part: It’ll be cooler, with lows in the upper 60s on Saturday and Sunday nights.

A cold front pushing south from the northwest and tropical air are causing the ugly weather.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather alert warning the front “could result in heavy rainfall and flooding” into Friday.

“The greatest risk for flooding will be along east coast metro area,” said Chuck Caracossa, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade.

The flood warning will likely continue into Friday night.

But by Saturday, the sun will come back out, making for a pleasant day with highs in the low 80s.

“The bulk of the storms are going to move out,” CBS4 meteorologist Michael Smith said, “and as we get into Saturday: breezy sun, less humidity that sets us up for a real good-looking Sunday.”
