Rough, cool weather to stick around through mid-week

South Florida will continue to experience rough weather conditions through the middle of the week, according to the National Weather Service. Waves are still projected to rise to as high as 15 feet in some flood-prone, coastal areas. NWS meteorologist Steven Ippoliti also says that beach erosion along both coasts of South Florida could be “significant,” so the weather service has issued a coastal flood watch through Monday evening.

In addition, temperatures through the week will continue to dip into the mid-50s for lows, with highs into the upper-70s and low-80s for inland portions of the region.

The reason for the rough surf and cooler air is the powerful nor’easter that is pushing swells across the Atlantic and into our area. That storm has killed at least nine people in its path, and has caused hundreds of flight and train cancellations and delays.

The waves also caused the closure of the Lake Worth Pier on Sunday. City officials said the pier will reopen when the winds and surf subside.
