The clear sky spells trouble for the overnight lows.

The lack of clouds, winds from the north, and dry conditions will lead to a quick drop in temps.

The low in Orlando will hit 43 degrees. In Ocala, the low gets into the 30s with a low of 36.

The normal low this time of year is 54, so tonight is a chilly one for the area for early December.

Tuesday will be a sun-filled day. We will dry, but cool. We will spend most of the day in the 50s and will have a high

of 61 degrees. That will be 13 degrees below normal. The low tomorrow will drop a few degrees lower than Monday. We will hit 40 for the low in Orlando.

On Wednesday we will have a high of 64. By the end of the week, we will be back to normal with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
