A weak cold front is expected to move through South Florida overnight and early Saturday morning pushing in drier air and strong northeasterly winds.
The front, which will only dip temperatures by a few degrees, does mean lower dew points even though there will some showers riding along the frontal boundary.
“We’re running about a 40 percent chance of rain on Saturday,” said Chris Fisher, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami. “The thing that will be most noticeable to people is the humidity will be lower and it won’t feel as humid.”
By Sunday, rain chances drop to 20 percent.
Temperatures should stay in the upper 70s for daytime highs with the low 70s or even the 60s overnight.
Pushing the cold front through are strong northeast winds, which will stick around through the weekend and early next week.
Sustained winds could be as high as 20 mph with gusts of up to 25 mph.
While the northeast winds will chop up the waters along the Atlantic coast, there is only a slight risk of rip currents.
“We like to see more of an easterly flow for strong rip currents,” Fisher said. “Northeasterly isn’t a good set up, but there still could be some in isolated areas.”
Don’t forget to look for the Taurid meteor shower tonight and Saturday night. The shower, although not robust, is known for producing spectacular fireballs.
And don’t forget to vote. Tuesday is expected to be clear skies and sunny so there shouldn’t be anything to keep you from the polls. It will be quite windy though.
