Pinpointing the arrival of the coldest air behind the cold front

Frost could even be on the ground early this week

Wind chills will be in the high 40s in most spots on Monday morning.

Florida – The cold front has moved on pushing all the storms over the open Atlantic and up the eastern seaboard. Behind the front it will still be windy tonight with a wind advisory in place through this evening for most of Central Florida.

Winds will continue to gust near 40 mph at times through the evening and then slow down a little overnight.

Lows Sunday 1/16/2022

It will be cold tonight, but not as cold as Monday night. Lows settle in the 40s across most of central Florida with partly cloudy skies. Factor in the wind and it will feel like the 30s at times.

Tomorrow will be cold and windy in the upper 50s to low 60s. There will be a good amount of sunshine and it will still be rather windy adding to the chill in the air for the Martin Luther King holiday. Marine conditions will continue to be hazardous as well.

Monday night will be the cold as skies clear, but the wind will slow down so it won’t feel even colder.
