Clocks Spring Forward, Thermometers Fall Back in Florida

Clocks may have “sprung forward”, but thermometers in Florida sure haven't. In fact, it feels like they've fallen back to a time more like January. For the second week in a row, a late-season frost or freeze is possible in parts of Florida as a persistent northwest wind will send shivers down the spines of spring-breakers from Pensacola to Miami.


The third powerful Nor'Easter in two weeks is forecast to intensify rapidly off the coast of New England Tuesday. The counter-clockwise motion around this strong area of low pressure system will steer Canadian air once again deep into the Southeast. Some sections of northern Florida and across the panhandle are prone to a second bout with near or sub-freezing temperatures in as many weeks.

Here are the projected morning lows over the next four days.


And daytime highs won't be much warmer.
