A feel of fall

The all too familiar “heat and humidity” has finally taken a backseat to autumn temperatures (across south Florida).   A small burst of fall air arrived overnight into Sunday morning with widespread lows in the 60’s.   While that may not seem cool enough to brag about, it’s notable because it’s our first sub-70 degree weather since last May!   Temperatures were able to settle below normal, due to the passage of a cold front and turning winds behind the boundary.   For now, a northerly air flow is providing clear conditions with low humidity.   Enjoy the change!   The next set of weather changes may not be as welcomed.   First, winds will strengthen and shift more off the ocean.   Gusty coastal conditions are expected during the early week, at least.  Then, more clouds will arrive.   As moisture slowly increases there could be some fast moving showers by midweek.   Overall, temperatures will creep back to seasonal levels…. so don’t look for more cool type nights (just mild).    Since onshore winds will remain the rule this week, several days with rip currents and boating advisories will highlight the forecast.
