Weather forecast: Warm conditions ahead of cold front Sunday

A front that caused chaos in the South is expected to barrel into South Florida on Sunday, elevating the chance of strong winds, thunderstorms and tornadoes. Winds will be strong again on Tuesday, but they'll improve for Wednesday and Thursday.

First, in the afternoon, some thunderstorms may pop up in the early afternoon in inland spots along the fast-moving sea breeze. A few flurries are also possible late tonight and Monday morning, but no significant snowfall is expected.

The central US experienced a severe storms outbreak on Friday. The storm prediction center notes that severe weather may be possible on Friday and into Saturday. This is one step higher over yesterday's Slight Risk and mean's our severe weather potential, including the threat for tornadoes, is looking slightly higher.

Highest temperatures of 11C to 14C degrees with fresh southeast winds.

Rain expected Monday and Tuesday, with snow and winds in the mountains
Odds for potentially gusty storms will spike later Sunday into Sunday night before tranquility returns Monday. Breezy, with a northeast wind 13 to 18 miles per hour becoming south southwest in the evening.

Sunday: A cloudier day with some showery rain, though some bright or sunny intervals may break through later in the afternoon especially in the west. Much calmer for Sunday with dry skies and highs in the 60's. We're already looking forward to "sunny and 75" on Tuesday - we just have to get through the rest of this winter-like weekend!

Engle said the normal average high is 58 and the normal low 41.

Mid to late week, high pressure moves into the Western Atlantic with a warming trend and moisture returning. Drier today with winds staying strong throughout the afternoon.

Cooler and more tranquil weather will arrive for Monday. The wind will be lighter today, and all areas will end up warmer with high temperatures mainly in the 60s for the plains, 50s over the mountains.
