The gray - and occasionally stormy - gloom that has blanketed South Florida for the past three days is forecast to be replaced with clear skies and cooler conditions, possibly as soon as Wednesday night.
A cold front, currently in the vicinity of Lake Okeechobee, is expected to push through the region by this evening and drop temperatures into the mid 60s by Thursday morning.
The chances of another tornado forming this afternoon are remote, the National Weather Service in Miami said.
“If we get anything, it will just be gusty winds,” said meteorologist Brad Diehl.
Officially, the forecast for the rest of Wednesday afternoon calls for scattered showers and storms with highs in the mid 80s. It also should be breezy with gusts of more than 20 mph.
Thanks to the cold front, high temperatures should be in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s on Thursday. It also should be mostly sunny.
The pleasant weather should hold through the weekend.
Meanwhile, all is quiet in the tropics.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
