How Many Burberry Scarves Will You Count?
BY: WEATHER TEAM | BocaNewsNow.com
UPDATE: 8:21 PM — We wrote this, as we sometimes do, with a bit of snark. But we then received a “real” photo and loved it. We are amending our ”contest!” We want photos of you or your loved-ones wearing a Burberry scarf — a staple of Boca living when the temperature drops. Our first entrant is from Nancy Hafter sending a pic of her 90-year-old dad Jerry, living in Boca West, looking as dapper as can be.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Get ready for the Boca Burberry Scarf Brigade! Tonight is expected to bring a blast of cold air to the area, with wind chills possibly dropping into the 30s.
For years, BocaNewsNow.com has welcomed this first blast of cold air with an unofficial contest: how many people do you see dressed as if they are in an upper-middle-class suburb of the arctic? We are looking for photos of people with scarves, winter jackets, and boots as the cold air moves in. To be clear: it’s not the wearing of warm clothes when it’s truly cold out that we care about. It’s the continued wearing of warm clothes once the sun comes up and the wind chill temperature jumps from the mid-30s to “non-existent” that always makes Boca, well, Boca.
As sure as a Brightline Train regularly hits someone in South Florida, it will be 70 on Tuesday and women will still be wearing scarves and boots, while screeching this bragging complaint to family members in New York on their iPhone speakerphone: “awwww mye gawd, it is sooooo cold here in Boh-ka!”
First, the official part of our fun here, from the National Weather Service: “Wind chill values will drop into the mid to upper 30s across portions of Glades, Hendry, and inland Palm Beach Counties late tonight.” The expected temperature over the next few days: a low of 46 Monday night, a high of 67 on Tuesday, a low of 55 on Tuesday night, and a high of 76 on Wednesday.
Now, for our UPDATED annual contest: We want photos of you or your loved ones decked out for a Boca Raton area cold wave. The prize, if any, will be determined. We’re still working on mugs or shirts…
