Coolest Time of Year (Normally) to Live Up to Its Name Next 10 Days

Early Morning Cloud Formation Last Week
TODAY: Last of potential severe weather with at least two confirmed tornadoes having touched down south of Sarasota in Sarasota County is in the process of clearing the East Central Florida Coast with a severe thunderstorm warning currently in place of bloggers location as I type. 

Windy today with RAPID clearing though not bona-fide as some more clouds and even a sprinkle might work back into the picture on the back side of the developing yet departing surface low in the Atlantic . Colder air will be advecting southward behind the low with temperatures falling into the mid-upper 40Fs tonight to lower 50Fs far East Central and South.

MONDAY: Clearing and cool with much lighter wind but still a healthy 'breeze'. A secondary boundary will be crossing Florida after midnight Monday night which means colder Tuesday morning. 

 As a side bar note - the same system crossing Florida today might bring some snow to areas near the Coast to parts of the Mid-Atlantic and or North East states depending on close it passes the coast 'up North'  though that chance seems to have decreased a bit as of the latest GFS model run.


TUESDAY- WEDNESDAY: Appears between these two days will be the coldest period we've experienced in quite a while with mid-upper 30Fs possible Interior Central and equally as cold to colder further north. Immediate east coast could see lower 40Fs one or both mornings, more likely Tuesday morning along with winds near 20mph (wind chills will make it feel much colder). 

Might see frost warnings for Wednesday morning some locations though wind so far appears  will be too elevated for frost at this point.

Might never see 60F degrees North Half of state on Tuesday and just barely 60F Central Florida on Wednesday.

All eyes will be on the Mercury these two mornings.

If you're looking for really light winds, we will likely not see them until overnight Tuesday into Wednesday day break.

LATE WEDNESDAY: As high pressure passes to the north and east of Florida light easterly flow will gradually introduce some low level moisture to the east coast.

THURSDAY: Can introduce cloud cover and chance of showers east coast from Brevard South through Miami and noticeably warmer in the morning as next frontal boundary approaches, but even so it will still be very cool  with lows in lower-mid 50Fs and near 60F right at the coast south of Cape Canaveral as wind becomes more southeasterly.

FRIDAY: One warm day might eke out 70F before next front goes through. This boundary might go dry in some locations. Based on timing of its passage though some areas might reach 70F before it crosses the state. 

Current timing is prior to peak heating  which would mean we might see 70F one time before it again becomes colder   accompanied by once again, windy conditions.

SATURDAY-SUNDAY have the potential to be equally as cold as Tuesday/Wednesday if not just a bit colder. But warm up appears to be rather rapid going into Monday afternoon.

BEYOND INTO THE SUPER-EXTENDED: Going into February have eyes on more severe weather potentials but many factors will have to come into play. Reaching the time when we can have more prolonged warm ups and hence, more chance for instability if another storm system rolls across the Gulf which is entirely possible next month.
