South Florida is expected to be hit by two cold fronts this week as low pressure systems sweep across the U.S.
Despite the two systems brushing Palm Beach County, the impact is forecast to be minimal, with temperatures staying near normal after a warm up on Wednesday.
“These are dry cold fronts without much moisture,” said Robert Garcia, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami. “The lows aren’t tracking over us. Just more pleasant weather.”
Normal daytime high temperatures for this time of year are 78 degrees. Wednesday should reach a high of 79 degrees with the rest of the week staying in the mid 70s.
According to the National Weather Service, the first low pressure system will move into the Ohio River Valley and into New England by mid-week. That system will push through South Florida on Thursday but the region will stay “pretty dry from the middle of the week through the end of the week.”
“That being said, it is still a boundary over the area and will keep a slight chance of precipitation in the forecast for now,” forecasters from the NWS in Miami wrote.
A second low pressure system will develop over the high plains and move “swiftly” into the deep south, passing over southern Georgia Thursday night.
This system is also expected to bring little rain and not much in the way of cooler temperatures.
