Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Miami said the front is expected to be dry with little rain. Mostly sunny skies are expected through at least Monday.

Friday will also be mostly sunny with a high temperature near normal at 79 degrees with a low of 69.

“This leads to a pleasant end to the week with partly cloudy skies and dry conditions,” forecasters wrote. “Sunday and Monday look cooler than normal with highs only in the low to mid-70s early next week and overnight lows potentially dropping into the upper 40s for the interior and Gulf coast and mid to upper-50s along the east coast.”

A coastal flood advisory remains in place for southeast Florida with minor flooding expected during high tides. Today’s high tides at the Lake Worth pier are at 10 a.m.  and 10:14 p.m.

The flooding tides are a hangover from November’s full moon, which was the closest the moon has been to Earth since 1948.

Forecasters in Miami said the flood advisory will remain in effect through at least tonight’s high tides and could be extended through Friday.

A moderate risk of rip currents is expected through the weekend with northeast winds as a high pressure system builds over the area. That high pressure will remain through at least Tuesday, promising clear skies with low rain chances.
