In a pattern change, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is calling for below-normal temperatures in Florida the second and third weeks of the month.

The first front moves into South Florida late Saturday, according to the National Weather Service, bumping up rain chances into Saturday night.

Sunday will be drier but with gusty northeast winds.

November began where October left off — with above normal temperatures. Highs in West Palm Beach have been in the low- to mid-80s with lows mostly in the mid-70s. The normal low for this time of the year falls to 67 on Saturday and gets kicked down another notch with 66 on Veterans Day.

Normal highs are around 81.

RECORD WATCH: The high in Naples on Wednesday was 89, which tied the record high for the date set last year.

TROPICS WATCH: The National Hurricane Center has dropped its yellow alert for a possible subtropical storm in the Atlantic. No development is expected over the next five days, which would leave just three weeks to go in the 2016 hurricane season.

Global forecast models show nothing brewing over the next 10 days, so it’s possible — but not a lock by any means — that Hurricane Nicole will be the season’s swan song.
