Put the overcoats back in the closet.
South Florida’s brief cold spell is expected to end this weekend, to be followed by conditions that will be much warmer, but not too hot, and will infuriate your friends and relatives in the frozen north.
Lows early Friday will be in the upper 40s around Lake Okeechobee and the low to mid 50s in most areas, and even the upper 50s along the coast, the National Weather Service’s Miami office said Wednesday morning in a press briefing.
By the weekend, and into next week, overnight lows will be in the mid to upper 60s and even into the mid 70s. Highs will push the mid to high 70s Friday and Saturday and low to mid 80s into next week. Overnight lows won’t get even down to 50, even inland.
The chance of rain is nearly zero, the weather service said.
