One of the best features of living in southern Florida is the year round warm weather. Luckily, for us Floridians we often get to walk the beach or surf the waves while the rest of the country is a snow covered, wonderland.
Thanks to a winter storm brewing off of the mid-Atlantic coast, there is an eminent threat of snow to the North East, and to just a crisp night here in Florida. South Florida will continue to be fairly warm and very sunny this week with a cool breeze in the air with temperatures still not beating the season’s record low. According the National Weather Service, “the low temperature so far this morning in West Palm Beach was just 44 degrees. While that’s 13 degrees below the normal low for this time of year, it doesn’t beat the 40 degrees that hit January 24.”
The record overnight low for Feb. 7 was 38 degrees in 1965.
Later this week we can expect another front that will bring cold weather to our sunny state. This front is expected to bring temperatures averaging 10 to 15 degrees below normal, according to forecasters in Miami. The first wave of the cold front will come through tonight with strong winds and more cold days this week. What makes these fronts so enjoyable is the low humidity. Dew points are only in the 30s, which for south Florida is virtually nothing! But PLEASE be careful if you plan to surf or swim in the ocean this week for rip currents are getting stronger as the surf builds.
So, to recap, this week will be cool and sunny with no humidity and perfectly sunny skies. Live it up south Florida!
