South Floridians, at least for the next two days, may want to reach for their sweaters and boots along with their umbrellas: Cooler temperatures lie ahead.
A mini cold front moving through the region is expected to bring down the usual high temperature into the mid-to-high 70s Wednesday and Thursday, forecasters said. Lows are expected to be in the 60s.
Showers and scattered thunderstorms will persist throughout Wednesday morning, but much drier and cooler weather will arrive in the afternoon. Thursday’s temperatures are expected to remain similarly low, though the forecast predicts more sun.
By Friday, temperatures are expected to jump back into the low-to-mid 80s during the weekend, closer to what South Florida usually experiences at this time of year.
“You’ll definitely feel temperatures cool down and less humidity in the air, but it won’t be here a long time,” National Weather Service meterologist Larry Kelly told the Herald Sunday.
