WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Quiet and mild overnight with lows in the upper 60s to near 70.

Wednesday will start with some sunshine, which will heat us up to near 90 degree and close to a record high. Winds will be gusty out of the south-southwest with gusts 35-40 mph so there is a wind advisory for the whole area and a small craft advisory of the offshore waters.

Severe weather threat for April 2, 2024.

A line of strong thunderstorms will approach ahead of a cold front in central Florida but will weaken as it moves southward. There is a marginal threat for severe weather for Indian River and Okeechobee counties and part of St. Lucie County for a stray stronger storm.

Timing has the line moving into Indian river and Okeechobee counties around 7-8 p.m., then breaking apart as it moves south through the overnight hours.

Lingering clouds or a stray shower Thursday morning then clearing, breezy and cooler with highs in the upper 70s.

A northwest flow sticks around through the weekend so the cooler, low humidity air will stay around for a few days.
