The cold front expected tonight is bringing stronger winds for this weekend, triggering the National Weather Service to warn of a high risk of rip currents through Monday.
Winds should start ramping up after 1 p.m. with gusts up to 22 mph today and up to 26 mph Saturday.
The rip current statement is in effect until Monday morning.
While the cold front is bringing drier air, it’s still expected to be a high of 76 tomorrow, which is near normal for this time of year.
South Florida temperatures have been running in the mid-80’s for about a week.
Also, the front seems to be slightly delayed. It’s not expected to hit Central Florida until this afternoon, and will then reach us tonight into Saturday morning.
“Temperatures will rebound fairly quickly Sunday into early next week as high pressure continues to shift eastward across the southeast U.S.,” NWS forecasters wrote this morning.
