Temperatures in Miami could rise significantly this week. The forecast predicts a lot of heat
Still not feeling very hot? Soon you will feel it.
“Temperatures are going to rise,” predicted CBS Miami meteorologist Lissette González.
This week, South Florida will feel very hot, with temperatures reaching 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and higher humidity. The mercury will rise so much that “a heat record is possible” for Wednesday and Friday, González said.
According to the National Weather Center (NWS) forecast discussion: “Temperatures will be well above normal for this time of year.”
The thermometer will begin to rise from Monday, when 80 degrees are forecast at noon and close to 85 degrees in the middle of the afternoon, the expert said. As the week progresses, it will get hotter, with a high of 84 degrees on Wednesday and 86 degrees on Friday.
Not much rain, if any, is predicted to cool the atmosphere down a bit, according to the NWS in Miami. The entire week the sun will be the protagonist, along with mostly clear nights, the agency said.
The heat will not stay forever.
A cold front will arrive in our area on Saturday, when in the afternoon, the highs will possibly remain below 80 degrees and by nightfall, on Sunday they would drop to the 60 degree range.
