MIAMI (CBSMiami) -- What a difference a day makes! Sunday a line of severe storms rolled in across the state of Florida and led to heavy rain and damaging gusty winds for South Florida.

By Monday morning, locals woke up to a quiet, dry start with chilly weather and a nice breeze. It was the coolest morning thus far this Winter season with lows dipping down to the low to mid 50s. The average low for this time of year is 60 degrees.

High temperatures will struggle to reach 70 degrees on Monday with highs in the mid to upper 60s and high level cirrus clouds streaming in due to a strong subtropical jet.

High Pressure is building in and will keep a northerly wind flow over the area through the middle of the week that will keep South Florida mainly dry, cool and breezy for the next few days.

Monday evening will be even colder with most areas falling to the low 50s. Few inland areas may even drop to the upper 40s overnight.

Highs on Tuesday will be a little cooler as compared to Monday with mid to upper 60s. The midweek high pressure moves South and settles across the Southeast which will cause wind to turn to the northeast. That's when the warming trend will begin with milder highs in the low 70s by Wednesday.

By Thursday morning, lows will be back in the 60s and highs in the mid 70s. 

Late Thursday into Friday a developing area of low pressure over the High Plains and the winds will turn more out of the South. This shift in the winds and an increase in moisture will lead to a better chance of rain Thursday night and some possible storms on Friday with highs near 80 degrees before another cold front arrives this weekend.
