    South Florida will finally see winter as temperatures will start to drop into the 40s Monday night.

    A cold blast has hit the rest of the nation with frigid temperatures and snowstorms, leaving South Florida with temps reaching the low 60s on Tuesday.

    Plenty of sunshine was expected, but breezy winds will make the weather feel like it is in the mid-to-low 40s early Tuesday morning.  During the day, wind chill values could be as low as the 50s.

    Tuesday evening temps are predicted to rebound back to the upper 50s and low 60s but will quickly warm up to the 70s on Wednesday and back to the 80s for the weekend.

    Miami-Dade officials recommend dressing in warm clothing and to consider wearing a hat that covers your ears when you’re outdoors. If you have a pet, bring it indoors or place the pet in an enclosed shelter with entrance away from the wind.

    Officials also say to place potted plants indoors and keep outdoor plants and trees watered. Dry weather can cause the risk of brush fires.

    Those who use electric space heaters are urged to inspect it before using it.

    Avoid using extension cords, keep the heater at least three feet away from furniture, curtains and other flammable items, install recommended smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace batteries regularly, according to the National Fire Protection Association.

    Officials also say to never use charcoal or other fuel-burning devices indoors, such as grills that can produce carbon monoxide.
