After a record-hot Tuesday, temperatures should be considerably more comfortable today. It also should be sunny and breezy.

South Florida's Wednesday forecast calls for afternoon highs in the upper 70s and low 80s and overnight lows in the upper 50s in Palm Beach County and the low 60s in Broward. Gusts to 25 mph.

Thursday's forecast is similar, though less breezy.

Central Florida's Wednesday forecast: Mostly sunny and breezy with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s.

Scirocco: From weather expert Jim Lushine:

Winds gusted to 38 mph at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Palm Beach International Airport. That's near tropical storm force. It also was hot and humid, with high readings in the low 90s.

In these parts, that's normal for mid-June, not April.

Tuesday's weather was like a Scirocco in Europe. No, not the car by Volkswagen. Rather, we're talking about a hot and humid wind that blows from North Africa into southern Europe.

In a Scirocco, southerly winds frequently top 35 mph and can last up to 18 hours. Usually, they're caused by an approaching cold front that passes through the Mediterranean Sea.

In South Florida Tuesday, conditions were similar. An approaching cold front caused strong, gusty southwest winds, while the Caribbean Sea supplied heat and humidity.

Maybe we should call our wind a Chevy Blazer.
