    Tuesday starts with temperatures in the lower 60s in South Florida, but highs will reach the upper 70s as temperatures begin to moderate.

    The big weather story will be the wind, forecasted to strengthen up to 30 mph. The tight pressure gradient stirring up the strong winds will hold through late week and as a result, seas will be rough and dangerous rip currents will develop at local Atlantic beaches.

    After a sunny start to Tuesday, clouds will blend in by late morning and continue scattered through the afternoon.

    Wednesday and Thursday will be windy with highs in the lower 80s. Some showers will likely move onshore during the time, but much of the day will feature dry and mostly cloudy weather.
