After a 2-day soaking, North Florida temperatures should dip to 28-32 degrees by daybreak Friday. In spite of sunny skies, Friday’s temps are expected to only reach the upper 40s Friday afternoon. As the frigid high pressure centered over the Ohio Valley Friday moves eastward to the mid-Atlantic coast Saturday morning, our winds may turn to the north northeast keeping northeast Florida from reaching freezing Friday night.

However, another cold front will arrive here on Monday to cause lows to be down below freezing again Tuesday morning. Again by Wednesday, the next high pressure should reach the mid-Atlantic coast the next day. This might keep our temps from dropping much below freezing Tuesday night, but if the high comes to the southeastern U.S. coast we have get a hard freeze Wednesday morning.

Our coldest climatological temperatures of the winter normally come around January 21. In 1985, an Arctic blast caused our temperature to fall to an all-time low of 7 degrees. The coldest temperature on record for Florida was -2 degrees in Tallahassee on February 13, 1899!
