Coldest air of the season blasts in Monday night

Wind chills will be in the 30s Tuesday morning


ORLANDO, Fla – A cold front continues to move through the panhandle and toward Central Florida.

Ahead of that front we will continue to see scattered showers through Sunday evening, but then the rain will actually pick up overnight as the front passes us by.

Showers will begin just after 10 p.m. Sunday night over northern zones and move toward the south and southeast fading away before dawn Monday. Lows overnight will stay in the upper 50s and low 60s with rain picking up late under mainly cloudy skies.

Monday’s daytime high temperature is right around 67 degrees, but that will happen at 4 a.m. Temperatures will fall throughout the day Monday and stay in the upper 50s and low 60s for the majority of the day under mainly sunny skies.

The northwest wind will still be very strong with winds gusting up near 25 mph, making it feel even colder than it actually is. Be sure to bundle up!

By Monday night, cold temperatures will settle in under clear skies.

Lows will range from 34 in Ocala to 45 in Cocoa Beach. These will be some of the coldest temperatures have been so far this season.

With the strong northwest wind still in play Monday night, much of central Florida will feel like the 30s. The cooler weather will last through the week before temperatures climb back into the mid-70s on Friday.

It will be frigid at the bus stop or getting ready for work Tuesday, as air temperatures fall into the 30s and 40s. With the breeze still a factor, it could feel more like the low-to-mid 30s.


Beach Forecast:


For boaters, a small craft advisory has been extended through Monday morning for strong winds and rough seas. Gradual improvement is expected by the middle of the work week.
