BRRR! The entire state of Florida is going to experience a frosty Christmas weekend.
As a result of an Arctic front that passed across the region late in the week, it is anticipated that temperatures will drop by at least 20 degrees from Thursday until Christmas Eve.
On Christmas Eve, the peak temperature is only projected to reach 50 degrees, while the area-wide feels-like temperature is forecast to plunge well below freezing that morning. It is quite likely that wind chill advisories and freeze warnings will be issued due to this.
According to the reports of Storm Team Meteorologist Ian Cassette, as the Arctic front moves through, it has the potential to be the coldest it has been in over a decade.

“In a normal situation, Florida can maintain its warmth or, at the very least, has something to shield it from the coldest air. At this point, it would appear that this trough is effectively excavating a hole in the cold air, and it may be robust enough to penetrate Florida, “Cassette added.
Despite the growing amount of sunshine, high temperatures may not rise above the 40s and 50s.
Even if there are no winds in the area on Christmas Day, the temperatures won’t get much higher. On Christmas Day, highs will not rise above the top 50s but will only reach the 40s.
Cassette remarked that “just for some perspective,” this particular Christmas Day might be the most exciting one since 1983. “Many, I was told, remember this Christmas, with a high of 36 degrees that day, so I think we can be gunning for the second coldest Christmas on record and one of the coldest days we’ve seen here since January of 2010,” the meteorologist said. “It’s one of the coldest days we’ve seen here since January 2010.”
