The story last week was the threat of frost across parts of Florida. This week, it’s near-record warmth. Temperatures warmed above normal Friday, and have kept climbing since. Several record highs are in jeopardy across portions of North Florida Tuesday and Wednesday.
High pressure centered in the northern Gulf of Mexico is bringing sunny and unseasonably mild weather. High temperatures will be anywhere between 80 to 87 through mid-week.
But the mild weather is set to change Thursday.
A cold front will carve its way through the middle of the country Tuesday and stall near the I-10 corridor Wednesday. Ahead of the front, a few showers are possible.
By Thursday, the cold front will inch its way through North Florida and plunge south through the beginning of the weekend.
High temperatures will drop from the mid 80s on Wednesday to the upper 70s by Friday. Low temperatures will cool from the low 60s to the mid 50s for the weekend.
