The words “wintry mix” still won’t appear in your local forecast, but with Christmas decorations already up, you have been hoping for South Florida to finally get out of what would for most be summer weather.
Now your wish has been granted. Things will get a little cooler later this week in South Florida, the National Weather Service’s Miami office says.
Highs will stay in the low 80s through Thursday, but by Friday and Saturday will get only up to the low 70s, with overnight lows dipping as far down as the low 60s along the coast and the high 50s around Lake Okeechobee.
Weather Service forecaster Larry Kelly said it’s too early to predict next week, but that this is around the time things start getting really pleasant.
“We start to get some of these cold fronts come through the area,” he said. “Give us a break from the (hot) weather.”
