MIAMI – We may have one more week of winter left, but don’t expect a final cold front to sweep onto Ocean Drive or the streets of Brickell and Calle Ocho anytime soon (also known as a night that drops to 69 degrees in which restaurants set up their outdoor heaters and Floridians rock their hoodies with flip-flops). This week, expect temperatures to reach the upper 80s.

According to the Local 10 10-Day Forecast, those in Miami can expect temperatures to hover around the low 80s up until Wednesday, and temperatures to reach 87 degrees beginning Thursday.

“If you enjoyed the weekend weather, you will enjoy your Monday,” says Local 10 Meteorologist Julie Durda. “Once we see the morning fog diminish expect mostly sunny skies with highs reaching the low 80s. Light winds are providing for perfect beach and boating weather conditions. Get out and enjoy.”

Local 10 Meteorologist Brandon Orr commemorated the last week of winter by sharing a funny tweet comparing the drastic differences in temperature between South Florida and Denver, Colorado.

Spring begins Saturday, March 20, and ends on Sunday, June 20.
