First Freeze Of The Season Expected Tonight

Jeff Huffman

Cold air continues to pour in to much of Florida in the wake of last night’s front, and temperatures are likely to drop to the lowest values this season (so far) by Thanksgiving morning.  The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for all inland counties, along with the inland areas of a few coastal counties including Nassau and Duval.  Freezing temperatures are expected in the areas shaded on the map in blue, where lows of 30 to 32 will be possible and subfreezing conditions will last approximately two hours.  Areas shaded in pink further inland could see the mercury drop as low as the upper 20s and subfreezing temperatures could occur for more than four hours.  Only one night of subfreezing weather is expected with this cold snap, as onshore winds will modify the airmass by Thursday night.
