South Florida can expect a mostly sunny, mild and breezy day, following the passage of a cold front.

Monday's forecast calls for highs in the upper 70s, lows in the mid 60s and wind gusts of up to 24 mph.

Over the next few days, temperatures should gradually warm. We might see the mid 80s by the weekend.

Meanwhile, there is little or no rain in the forecast, and moderate drought conditions have now spread to the Lake Okeechobee area and Palm Beach County's metro areas, the National Weather Service in Miami said.
