50s and 60s. mostly 50s tonight, already close to 50s out there. beautiful evening out there. and mostly -- mostly rain-free for the next day or so. let's go from here now to the radar. and we'reoing to show you exactly how this is going to be playing out for the rest of the evening. and what you are looking at now, none of this is actually rainfall. it is just some false echoes out there so nothing to worry about whatsoever. north winds, that is the big story for us tonight. broward, miami-dade, not a drop in sight. wednesday commute, same thing. just a few clouds out there. crisp, dry roads. we could be talking mid and upper 50s, evev for the morning commute out there. a mix of sun and clouds coinuing through the afternoon. i think we'll get into the low 70s continuing with that dry theme. and look at that. highs maybe just a couple of degrees warmer than what temperatures are going to be at 5:00. average highs this time of the year around 76 degrees. so it has been a while since we've seen temperatures below average at night and below
so, a couple of things going on here. frontal boundary that brought us the cooldown still down across cuba. north winds behind the front where we are. the only thing that will keep temperatures up a little bit is this high cloud that continues to stream in over florida. clouds, believe it or not, actually generate heat. they radiate heat and that will keep numbers up a bit for the rest of the evening. just a bit. 56 is still the forecast low. without that cloud though, we could be talking low 50s easily, with a north wind out there. and clear skies. but not clear skies tonight. mix of sun and clouds continues over the next couple of days or. so a little bit more moisture rolling in thursday. more moisture still into friday. and look at the temperatures rebounding quickly into the low 80s. from below average to above average like that. and then just down right warm on saturday. then it does look like a front pushes on through. mid-70s behind that front, could be talking about more 50s for lows. let's quickly look at the wednesday forecast, going hour by hour. those north winds continue.
mix of sun and clouds. that type of regime will continue through the day. t no green. that would be rain on future tracker through the afternoon and early evening hours. so this is how it looks, guys, as we go hour by hour. 73 is the high. average high 76. pleasant if you ask me. over to you. >> all right. thank you, adam. there is something kraurling around in the -- crawling around in the dark in thailand that is cheapy and cool. tourists are flocking to see hermit crabs of all sizes forging for food. they come out during the day but by the thousands at night because of crumbs left by humans and other animals too. >> i don't know if i would want that. >> not a beach vacation. >> not if i'm going to the beach. still ahead, a heartwarming
