Turn up your heaters North Central Florida, because another chilly night is ahead of us. Temperatures aren’t going to be quite as bone-chilling as they were last night, holding above the freezing mark. However, a light westerly wind will contribute to a small wind chill effect, making it feel as if it were just about 33 degrees when you walk out the door in Gainesville tomorrow morning. Temperatures will not be as cool on the Atlantic or Nature coasts, where they should hold right around 40.
Although a freeze is not forecast to impact the area tonight, there will be some patchy frost developing tonight, especially after midnight. The most likely locations for the development of frost are rural areas in the St. John’s River valley and interior locations along the I-10 and I-75 corridors. If you have any pets or plants that are be susceptible to frost, you definitely want to bring them inside tonight.
By 7AM tomorrow, the sun will come out and burn off any remaining frost, warming us up to a mild 70 degrees. Low temperatures for the rest of the week will be more seasonal, in the mid-40′s, with high’s holding just around 70 degrees as we head on into the weekend.
