    Friday was expected to be less breezy than earlier in the week, and temperatures could reach the lower 80s.

    The day will start in the lower 70s and see highs in the lower 80s.  Winds from the east will be between 10-15 mph.

    South Florida should see more breaks in the clouds than Thursday.  It will be partly sunny with a 30 percent chance of a shower throughout the day.

    Saturday will be partly sunny as well with highs in the lower 80s.  Although highs are seasonable, morning lows in the lower 70s are more than 5 degrees above average.  As a front dissipates slightly to our north, the slight chance of a shower remains.

    The wind will strengthen Sunday as the next round of high pressure slides over the southeastern U.S. 

    The rip current risk will increase at local beaches and small craft advisories will likely go into effect.

    Highs will be near 82 degrees as the sun and cloud combination continues.
