Will you need a jacket again this week? What to know as cooler temps head to South Florida

With back-to-back cold fronts to start December, South Florida has gotten a taste of winter weather — at least for the region. Are more cooler days ahead this week?

A cold front creeping down the southeastern U.S. is en route to Florida. The front was tied to severe storms that slammed parts of central Tennessee. But there’s good news: it’ll be weaker when it arrives to South Florida.

“That front will be taking its time but will be pushing across South Florida as we head into [Sunday] night,” said KC Sherman, meteorologist with Miami Herald news partner CBS News Miami.

Aside from the small dip in temperatures, the front will increase risk of rip currents, marine hazards and high surf throughout the week, according to the National Weather Service in Miami. On Thursday, forecaster anticipate a risk of coastal flooding, which is expected to be minor inundation of vulnerable locations.

Here’s a look at this week’s weather, as per the NWS.

Monday should be mostly sunny with a breeze, a high near 76 and a low around 64.

Tuesday, the breeze is expected to continue, though it will be cloudy with a high near 78. There’s a 40% of rainfall at night — and a low around 71.
