BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We joke about hell freezing over — many folks have strong feelings about South Florida — but know this: it’s going to be extraordinarily cold on Thursday and Friday in Boca, Delray and Boynton. While we enjoy taunting those who overdress with mittens and boots when it’s 60, what may be heading our way later this week is the real deal… pipes may freeze, and burberry scarves will absolutely be acceptable.
But lulu lemon spandex on anyone who weighs more than 160 never is.
From the National Weather Service:
Temperatures Dropping to Near Freezing Thursday and Friday in
Portions of South Florida for Thursday and Friday…
Cold air will move in later this week, as a developing low
pressure system over the Straits of Florida pushes a stalled cold
front further away from the area on Wednesday.
Glades and Hendry counties may see near, or possibly below
freezing temperatures both Thursday and Friday mornings. Friday
morning looks to be the coldest, with localized areas possibly
seeing lows in the upper 20s. Even if the temperature is able to
remain just above freezing, frost is a possibility.
Wind chill values will also be low, with Glades County possibly
seeing wind chill values in the mid 20s, and Hendry County seeing
values in the upper 20s to around 30. Friday morning may see even
colder values, possibly into the low 20s.
For Palm Beach County, lows Thursday may drop into the mid to
upper 30s in the interior areas. This will bring the possibility
of frost, mainly in sheltered areas Thursday morning. For Friday
morning, the wind is forecast to be near calm, which would allow
for low to be colder, dropping to around 30, especially south of
Lake Okeechobee. So, there is a chance of seeing freezing
temperatures in some areas, and areas of frost for the interior
portions of Palm Beach County. Metro Palm Beach County is forecast
to see lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Wind chill values for interior Palm Beach County may drop into
the mid to upper 20s in the interior areas on Thursday and
Friday. Wind chill values for the metro areas of Palm Beach County
are forecast to be in the low to mid 30s each day.
Collier County will vary greatly from the interior to the coastal
areas. Areas in the northern interior, including the Immokalee
area may see lows Thursday in the mid 30s and low 30s on Friday.
For the areas of coastal Collier County, lows are forecast in the
mid to low 40s on Thursday and upper 30s to low 40s on Friday,
with the warmer temperatures being near the coastline.
Wind chill values will be lowest in the northern interior areas,
with the Immokalee area seeing wind chill values around 30 on
Thursday morning and mid 20s on Friday morning. The coastal metro
area are forecast to see wind chill values in the mid to upper 30s
Thursday morning, and low to mid 30s Friday morning.
The remainder of South Florida, including Broward, Miami-Dade,
and mainland Monroe counties, is forecast to see lows dipping into
the low to mid 40s, with the warmer temperatures near the coasts.
Localized areas that typically see cooler temperatures, such as
Redland in Miami-Dade County, have a chance to see frost Friday
Wind chill values for the rest of South Florida are currently
forecast to run in the 30’s both Thursday and Friday morning,
except possible values in the low 40s along the Atlantic coastal
communities of Miami-Dade County.
