A wind chill advisory is in effect for Lake and Volusia counties through early Saturday morning. A wind advisory remains in effect for areas along and east of I-4 until 1 a.m. Saturday.
Actual air temperatures Friday night fall into the 40s for most, but the 30s are possible northwest of I-4. It will be warmer along to the coast due to the wind off of the relatively warmer Atlantic. It will still feel chilly, however, with the gusty winds along the coast.
