Record heat recorded overnight, but it’s about to cool way down

A record overnight low temperature was broken in West Palm Beach when the mercury dipped to only 75 degrees.

That beats the 74 degrees recorded for the same date in 1982.

The normal low for this time of year is 58.

But the high pressure that’s been sitting over South Florida this week is about to make way for much cooler air tonight as the first of two cold fronts push through.

Overnight lows tonight are expected to dip to 60 degrees and not warm up much tomorrow. Friday’s daytime high will struggle to reach 70 degrees.

The wind is also expected to ramp up tomorrow with northerly gusts hitting 30 mph as cold air advection follows that cold front through the peninsula.

A second cold front making its way through on Saturday will shove temperatures in to the low 50s overnight and Monday morning will see temperatures plunge into the 40s.
