The chilliest night in nearly a year is on deck for South Florida as widespread 40s settle in for low temperatures by Monday morning. While not record-breaking, these readings will be the coldest that we’ve experienced this winter season.
Where Sunday lacked sunshine thanks to the abundant cloud cover, Monday will bring a return to bright skies.
However, temperatures will continue to trend below average as highs struggle to reach the upper 60s.
Broward County has declared a one day Cold Weather Emergency from 6 p.m. Sunday until 10a.m. Monday.
The National Weather Service added Broward County to the list of counties on their Frost Advisory. The other counties on the list are Glades, Hendry, inland Palm Beach, and inland Collier.
Tuesday will bring a rapid turnaround as lows dip into the mid-50s and highs jumping into the mid-70s.
The forecast will remain dry until Wednesday when showers, and maybe a storm, return to the forecast.
Late in the week, another system will be on the way to the area to, yet again, knock temperatures below average for Saturday and Sunday.
