    The cold blast continued in south Florida Tuesday with a dose of arctic air forcing Miamians to bundle up.

    Tuesday morning, low temperatures plummeted into the 30s in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, again setting new records this month.

    Locals awoke to a freeze warning and wind chill warning as "feels like" temperatures dove all the way into the 20s.

    Afternoon highs are expected to only reach the upper 50s. For some perspective, the average high in Miami for today is 77 and the average low is 62. The highest temperature of the day won't even be in the range of normal lows. In fact, many towns and cities may set records for the coolest high temperature on December 14th.

    A freeze warning will be in effect again Tuesday night into Wednesday and early temperatures tomorrow will be in the 30s. Temperatures will moderate later in the week as high pressure slides eastward into the Atlantic and temps go back into the 70s.
