Frost advisories in place for start of week

Temperatures dip into the 30s and 40s Monday morning


ORLANDO, Fla- – Clear skies, light winds, and cold temperatures are a recipe for frost.

There are frost advisories in place for Marion and interior Flagler County from 3 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday morning. Be sure to take care of pets that may be outdoors and plants that are sensitive to the colder weather.

Lows will range from the low-to-mid 30s over our northern zones. From Orlando on south, lows will be in the upper 30s to low 40s. Keep in mind that cities outside the frost advisory areas could still see patchy frost early Monday morning as well.

Be sure to have the kids bundled up as they head to the bus stop. We’ll see temperatures around 40 degrees in the morning before they rise to near 60 by noon. Highs return to the mid-60s under sunny skies.

There will only be a few more days of 60 and 70-degree weather before the warm 80s return. That will be just in time for the weekend. Rain chances also will be near 20 to 30% by the end of the workweek.

Frost potential

With temperatures dipping into the low to mid 30s north and west of I-4, patchy frost will be possible in the wind-protected areas of Marion, Volusia, interior Flagler, Sumter and Lake counties. If you have budding plants, it’s best to cover them up Sunday night into Monday morning. The best chance for frost is shaded in purple on the map above.
