Post by LargoFL on Wed Jan 17, 2018 9:37 am

they are still trying to figure out HOW cold it will get..................colder warnings might come out later today...............................NWS Tampa.....For tonight, substantial cold air advection will continue
with widespread freezing temperatures appearing likely over
a good part of the peninsula. Freeze watches of the hard and
soft variety remain in effect for the overnight hours, and
will likely be upgraded to warnings later this afternoon as
confidence in areal extent and duration increase. Elevated
winds in concert with falling temperatures should lead to
some fairly impressive wind chills with teens expected north
of I-4, and low to mid 20s elsewhere. Wind chill advisories
have been issued for this potential. Marine conditions will
also become quite dangerous this evening and overnight with
building waves and strong north winds.

NWS Melbourne.....(clipped)......
The best chance for longer duration of freezing temperatures are
still expected across Lake and Volusia counties, with lows in the
upper 20s to around 30 degrees. However, a period of a 2-3 hours
of temperatures around or just below freezing look possible toward
the I-4 corridor southward through Osceola County, especially
outside of more urban areas. Have therefore upgraded the Freeze
Watch to a Freeze Warning for Lake, Volusia, Seminole, Orange and
Osceola counties, and cancelled the Watch for northern Brevard and
Okeechobee counties where any temperatures near freezing are
expected to remain limited to more isolated normally colder
locations. Along the Treasure Coast, lows are forecast to range
from upper 30s to low 40s. These colder temperatures combined with
NW winds up to 10-15 mph overnight will produce low wind chill
values in the 20s to low 30s through early Thursday morning. A
Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for all of east central
Florida during this period.

It was a cold 34 this morning. My work assignment required me to drive the boat from Cedar Key to Horseshoe Beach and back. It was cold, cloudy and raw That was the coldest I have been on the water in several years. I got back to Cedar Key at noon and I am just now starting to thaw out. Looks like lower 20's tonight with wind chills in the mid teens. Fun times. We will all be stripping down to bathing suits when it hits 70 this weekend.

NWs Miami.........
UPDATE...
Some cloud cover lingers over the region associated with
convection in the Caribbean and fog that developed over Southwest
Florida has dissipated. The cold front is pushing across the Big
Bend of Florida this morning on its way south. Continue to analyze
the latest guidance, but have tweaked tonight`s temperatures down
a tad for this update. Expanded the Freeze Watch to include
Hendry County and it may also need to be expanded later today to
include inland Collier County. Glades will likely need a Freeze
Warning for tonight and the current watch may be upgraded within
the next few hours as the 12z models begin to arrive.

The Wind Chill threat appears to be more certain overnight into
Thursday morning, so a Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for
Southwest Florida and portions of Palm Beach and Broward Counties.
Will continue to monitor conditions and the forecast trend to see
if this might have to be expanded any further. Updated zones have
been transmitted with these changes.

Good morning from frozen Levy county. It got down to 20 at my place this morning and the sky was a beautiful pink at sunrise due to the early morning light filtering through the icy cold air. Super dry here as well with no frost at all. My secretary lives a mile from me on an open scrub hill and she has two thermometers that both said 16!!! Too cold for north central FL.

I agree it just might get colder tonight with perfect radiational cooling conditions forecast. NWS even mentions guidance coming in several degrees colder for tonight and now have a hard freeze for all north central FL. It has been a few years since I have seen teens at my place, but we might do it tonight.

We eat chili almost once a week during the winter months as my kids love it and it really helps warm you up. I am not a big soup or stew eater most of the time, but when we do have a cold winter I really enjoy them. Yesterday my wife my a big pot of ham and bean soup she made from the ham bone left over from Thanksgiving. It was delicious and really helped warmed me up after my cold boat ride.

It is colder in north Florida right now than in northern Minnesota.

Not too bad here in St. Pete. My thermometer said 31° this morning but no ice anywhere, and its already up to 40.

Chili is a staple here.  I cook up about a large pot every other month or so, and freeze a dozen portions for my lunch rotation.  Holiday leftovers provided turkey soup, split-pea soup, and beans&ham.  Got chili-mac on deck for this weekend.  Smile

Launch tonight -- window = 7:52pm + 40 minutes. I'm pretty sure it will be a mostly clear night.

Oh, and I'm up to a balmy 43.7.  Not close to the forecast high so curious what happens tonight.  I see they have expanded the hard freeze and freeze warnings again.  My updated low is now 30 for tonight.

Don't they sometimes postpone launch due to cold temperatures?

Good afternoon. Looks like it was a BRRRR day for many! 25 here overnight/early morning. Ran an errand at 1pm and it was only 46 under full sunshine. Upper 20's forecast tonight then onward and upward to more normal temps.

Well, so much for that idea. Just checked my NWS JAX forecast. Another night of 25 then up to 37 tomorrow night. Will monitor if that trends downward and whether or not a few plants will need cover again.
