Chill In The Air Here, Snow Possible Tomorrow In Northern Florida


chillSouth Florida won’t feel like itself on Tuesday, with clouds and showers combining with a gusty breeze to put a chill in the air. Tuesday features clouds and showers from the front stalled to our south. We’ll also see a high risk of dangerous rip currents at the Atlantic beaches. Highs on Tuesday will top out in the upper 60s.

Wednesday will see clouds and showers linger during much of the day, until skies clear and colder air arrives. Wednesday’s highs will be in the upper 60s.

According to The Weather Channel areas of northern Florida could see snow beginning sometime Wednesday.

chillA swath of snow and ice will spread from north Florida tonight to New England into Thursday as a large, powerful low-pressure system intensifies off the East Coast.

Yes, you read that right. Winter storm watches have been issued as far south as parts of north Florida, coastal Georgia, and the Lowcountry of South Carolina, including the cities of Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina.

This is the first winter storm watch issued by the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville, Florida, in almost four years, since Winter Storm Leon produced snow and ice over much of the Southeast, leading to travel chaos in cities such as Atlanta and Birmingham, Alabama.

Winter weather advisories are also in effect for another narrow strip of south Georgia and north Florida just east of the city of Tallahassee, Florida, and as far south as Apalachee Bay.


Thursday morning will be cold, with lows in the 40s. The day will feature lots of sun and a few clouds on a chilly breeze. Thursday’s highs will be in the low 60s.

Friday will be cold and mostly sunny. Friday’s highs will be in the low to mid 60s. Look for good sun, a few clouds, and a cool breeze on Saturday. Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 60s.
