WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — We continue with our unseasonably warm temperatures for this time of year with highs running more than 10 degrees above average at times.

It's also abnormally dry across Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, especially since February closed with a deficit rainfall of almost 1.5 inches.

The next update to the drought monitor is on Thursday.

Friday and Saturday are the hottest days in the forecast with possible low 90s for high temps.

Then a weak cold front may enter the area on Sunday, which could bring relief from the heat by moderating temperatures back to normal for this time of the year, which are the low 80s for afternoon highs.

Windy conditions are expected late week and into the weekend with a few showers and more clouds on Sunday as the front moves in.

Sunday will feel a tad cooler with highs in the low 80s. Seasonable temperatures will continue into early next week.
