These past few days the weather has had a crisp chill in the air. If you are a common beach goer you may have spotted your fellow beach walkers out enjoying the weather but with an extra layer of clothing. 

Over the next dew days the weather is expected to warm up again for a little bit. The typical warm and humid south Florida temperatures will regain control, so if you are an avid sun worshiper, take this chance to make the rest of the nation jealous and hit the beach or pool.
