Very Cold Temperatures Midweek


Bottom Line:

An arctic airmass will follow a cold frontal passage Tuesday to produce the coldest air of the season thus far with lows both Wednesday and Thursday mornings in the low to mid 20s. Some upper teens are also possible across the outskirts of the wiregrass Wednesday morning from southeast Alabama and adjacent southwest Georgia. Wind chills will also fall into the single digits and teens Wednesday morning as well. A HARD FREEZE WATCH has been issued from Walton/Bay counties northeast to Turner/Ben Hill counties and locations west of this line for temperatures 23F and below. Social media graphics are attached to this email for your dissemination.




A cold front will move through the region Tuesday morning with light rain along and behind the frontal passage. On its heels, an arctic airmass will move in with a surge of very cold air expected from Tuesday night and Wednesday morning through Thursday morning. Wednesday morning low temperatures will range through the 20s, with upper teens and lower 20s located through southeast Alabama, portions of the western Florida panhandle west of the Apalachicola river, and much of southwest Georgia along and west of I75. 


Along with the cold temperatures Wednesday morning, winds will be in the 10-15 mph range which will cause wind chills to drop into the single digits and teens through the area by daybreak. Anticipate a wind chill advisory to be issued in subsequent forecasts.


Highs Wednesday will only make it back into the mid/upper 40s with lows Wednesday night falling back into the 20s. A hard freeze is possible for some areas again Thursday morning, but it's too early to determine the extent of that possibility. Light winds are expected Wednesday night so wind chills will be less of a concern.


These cold temperatures will be impactful for everyone but especially those that have been impacted by the recent tornadoes, those that may be without power, and the responders that continue clean up and restorative services. Don't forget to check on the elderly and remember the 4Ps: People/Pets/Plants/Pipes.
