PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – It’s a chilly change for South Florida, as our first taste of winter moves in behind a cold front.
Tuesday morning saw lows in the 50s, something we haven’t felt since early March. Those of us near the coast saw temperatures in the upper 50s, but mid-50s were felt away from the beaches.
WATCH LOCAL 10 METEOROLOGIST LUKE DORRIS’ REPORT BELOW:
This is well below the normal low of 66 to start December.
Late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning will be even colder.
Temperatures will dip to the mid-upper 40s away from the beaches, while those near the coast may stay in the low 50s.
A steady and noticeable northern breeze gusting to 25 mph will accompany the cool weather, adding to the chill factor a bit.
Afternoons will be crisp and cool with 70s for most Tuesday and Wednesday, though some spots may stay stuck in the 60s.
A warming trend will begin Thursday, and we’re back to business-as-usual by the end of the week.
But winter fronts are on the move, and another dose of chilled air looks to arrive by the weekend.
