ORLANDO, Fla.- – The coldest morning of our stretch of cold days is upon us. And the steady breeze is throwing salt in the wounds, creating wind chills in the 20s early Wednesday.

Overnight lows dipped into the mid-30s across Central Florida, with wind-chill readings in the low to mid-20s in some areas.

The wind chill in Ocala dropped to 22 degrees, while Palm Coast reached 25 and Orlando dipped to 27.

High temperatures Wednesday will struggle to reach 60 degrees.

A few showers will be possible later Wednesday as a coastal system develops off the east coast of Florida.

This system gradually moves away from the Sunshine State but will be responsible for gusty winds through the day. Wind gusts will reach 35 mph.

It will be dangerous at the beaches and out at sea, with big waves and a very high rip current threat.

Temperatures improve over the next few days before another cold front, albeit not nearly as strong, crosses the region Saturday afternoon.
