None Dare Call It Winter

Sometimes it does get cool here.

South Florida’s weather roller coaster is taking another plunge tonight. Though today’s high temperature is expected to be comfortably in the 70s, a cold front moving across the state, accompanied by high winds and rain, should drop temperatures to the mid-40s tonight, even in coastal areas, National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Pifer said. Winds of about 10 miles per hour tonight could push the wind chill to the mid-30s to low 40s. It might be the coldest weather of the season thus far, he said. Thursday’s high is expected to be only in the mid-60s, with lows Thursday night in the mid-50s near the coast and in the 40s inland. ”By Friday, on into Saturday, we should be just slowly starting to recover,” Pifer said.

This is a little rehearsal for my trip to Ohio after Christmas.
