A cool front is heading our way this weekend and we're watching the tropics

Cooler air will overspread the region this weekend

Finally!  With Halloween approaching and the fall season well underway, South Floridians are about to see a much needed cool down.  The leaves have begun to change their colors in the northeast, but closer to home at times it still feels quite warm under the October sun.  However, this weekend, a cool front is going to make its way across the region and bring with it, not just cooler air, but also much drier air as the humidity takes a tumble.

The front right now is stretching from Texas all the way up to New England.  Over the next few days it will slowly make its way towards the peninsula.  Ahead of the front, a northeasterly flow off of the ocean will keep our temperatures in the mid 80s.  At times a quick moving shower could affect the area.  The breezes stay up as well.

The cool front should move through by Friday night.  We’re not expecting much rainfall with this system, but on the backside, the dew point will drop from the 60s to the 50s.  That means overnight lows will be quite cool in some spots, mainly near the lake.  You can open the window and let the comfy air in!
