    [MI] Sunday's Forecast: Sunny, Breezy and Chilly
    Sunday will be sunny but very chilly with highs only in the lower 60s. Tonight will be less windy, clear and cold again with lows in the upper 40s. Monday will be warmer with highs in the lower 70s.

    “It doesn’t faze us,” said Angel Rodriguez, one of several surfers in the water in Miami Beach. “We’re die-hards when it comes to getting out on the water. And all we care about is catching good waves.”

    Marcela Criado and her family were in South Florida visiting from Argentina. Criado said she didn’t expect the 40- and 50-degree weather.

    Tom Lyon, visiting from Kansas, said whether you think it’s cold in South Florida depends on where you normally live. “It’s cold for, I think, everyone here,” he said. “But for us, it’s OK.”

    He said he was making the best of the cooler weather. “Hey, the sun is out and we’re on vacation, so it’s all good,” he said.
