Cold front hits South Florida after Tropical Storm Philippe's rain

Tornadoes cause some damage in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties

MIAMI – Put away your umbrellas and rain boots and pull out your sweaters and closed-toe shoes. After Tropical Storm Philippe, a cold front will bring down temperatures Monday morning. 

There will be a low of 63 degrees late Sunday night and temperatures will be in the 50s by Monday morning. 

Philippe's tornadoes left some damage in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. For a few, Philippe was worst than Hurricane Irma. Restaurateur Robert Graziano said the tornado was loud. 

"There was a lot of rattling of the doors," Graziano said. "When [the tornado] was gone, we came out and we saw what happened." 

A downed tree damaged two cars. Fences were damaged and the power was down. There was minimal flooding in Miami Beach and more downed trees in Southwest Miami-Dade. There was also some damage at a mobile home park in Palm Beach County. 

Residents of the Parry Trailer Village in suburban Boynton Beach were repairing their homes Sunday morning after strong winds made homes shake and ripped out roofs and fences Saturday night, The Palm Beach Post reported
