Unseasonably Warm Winter Predicted Despite Chilly Temps in South Florida
Don’t let the sweater weather fool you. The National Weather Service predicts that South Florida along with much of the nation will see an unseasonably warm winter.
The news falls during a cold snap and amid circulating photos of last weekend’s recording of up to two inches of snow in northwest Florida.
The cooler temperatures are expected to stick around until Thursday, keeping highs contained to the 60’s and 70’s and plunging lows down to the 40’s in the overnight hours.
The cold has the daily temps running about 10 to 15 degrees below normal for this time of year, according to the NWS in Miami.
South Florida will experience the chilliest lows on Wednesday night, but temps should remain in the low to mid 40’s, with coastal areas probably not dropping below 50 degrees.
A warming trend will begin on Thursday, bringing pleasant days into the 70’s and prepping the weekend to return to sunny skies and near 80 degrees for the highs.
While the air conditioners may get a much needed break, the National Weather Service says the current cold snap is nothing unusual. We may expect a few more as the winter season gets underway.
Don’t despair, or go out and purchase a snow jacket. The cold front will only hover a few more days.
Temperatures will snap back to average or slightly above by Monday pushing highs in the low to mid 80’s and lows in the 60’s.
