The same storm system that damaged homes and cars in North-Central Florida over the weekend isn’t finished with us yet. Northwest winds will continue to circulate around the large area of low pressure, now moving off the Mid-Atlantic coast, for several days. Air straight from Canada will make its presence known and likely stick around much longer than most Floridians desire this time of year. Those winds will make it feel brisk during the afternoon hours at times, with daytime highs likely only reaching the 60s through Thursday. Normal high temperatures this time of year in North-Central Florida are between 75 and 80. As the winds calm down a bit at night, especially mid-week, overnight lows will dip into the 30s for three straight nights. Our coldest morning of the week will either be Wednesday or Thursday, when the projected lows dip very close to the records for the date. The following table has all of the latest numbers and will be updated throughout the week:
LOWS AND RECORDS THIS WEEK
TUESDAY – forecast is 35°, record is 34° from 2006
WEDNESDAY – forecast is 32°, record is 31 form 2006
THURSDAY – forecast is 35°, record is also 35° from 1999
FRIDAY – forecast is 43°, record is 33° from 1955
