Cool temps arrive Monday ahead of brutally cold wind chills Tuesday, Wednesday

Strong winds return Tuesday afternoon

ORLANDO, Fla- – A few showers across northern zones will fade away Sunday night. Most of the rain will clear the coast by midnight.

The gusty west to northwest wind will help usher in cool temperatures behind the front.

Overnight lows will range from the upper 30 across northern central Florida to the mid-to-low 50s in Brevard county.

Highs on Monday will struggle to reach the upper 50s-to-low 60s, even with lots of sunshine around.

It will be windy all day Monday into the night and that will make it feel even colder Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

Jacket-worthy weather returns Monday afternoon, but the big chill arrives Tuesday morning. Factor in the wind Tuesday morning and it will feel more like the 20s and 30s. It will feel even colder Wednesday morning with winds gusting to 30mph. The gusty winds will limit widespread frost development, but in wind protected areas, especially northwest of I-4, frost will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday.

A freeze, temperatures below 32, will be possible northwest of I-4. Plants left outside could be damaged. It’s a good idea to bring the pets in during this cold streak.

We’re back in the mid-70s by Friday.

Beach and Boating:

The ocean is still rough for boating and an elevated rip current threat continues. The surf is expected to turn rough again early in the work week.
