NWS forecasters said this morning the cold front is expected to be knocking on South Florida’s door midday Friday.

“There is also good agreement from the models on the magnitude of cooling behind the front,” forecasters wrote. “Temperatures Saturday morning could reach the upper 40’s in parts of Glades and west Hendry counties..

Coastal Palm Beach County is more likely to see lower 60’s with upper 50’s in the western areas of the county.

By Saturday, the high may only be near 70 and overnight lows could dip again to 60 degrees.

Today’s record high in West Palm Beach is 86 degrees, so we could come close to breaking the record set in 1927.

Florida is on track for 2015 to be the hottest year on record. South Florida has been running about 3 degrees above normal, hence, the scorcher reference.
