Following a strong cold front Monday morning, South Florida is about to embark on a chilly stretch of weather to begin the month of February. 

Along with the front, windy conditions moved into the region and have prompted a wind advisory to be issued. With gusts between 30 and 35 mph possible overnight, it will remain in effect until 10 a.m. Tuesday.

In anticipation of the cold weather, shelters in Miami-Dade County will be open Monday for the homeless population. Those who require assistance with homeless sheltering should contact the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust Helpline at 1-877-994-HELP (4357) or 305-375-CARE (2273).

Noticeably colder temperatures are expected Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings as lows drop into 40s. 

Wednesday morning is likely to yield the coldest temperatures we’ve experienced this winter season with early readings falling into the lower to mid-40s.

Despite sunny skies, afternoon highs will run in the 60s for the next few days.  That’s about 8-10 degrees below average for this point in the season.

By Thursday, highs finally reach the lower 70s as mostly sunny skies continue.

By Friday, the forecast leans on a warming trend that will carry highs back to near 80 for the weekend.
