Live Oak — From NOAA, 7:52 a.m. Monday:
An arctic cold front is charging eastward through Southeast Georgia and the Suwannee Valley early this morning. This front will blast through the rest of our area this morning, accompanied by scattered showers. In the wake of the front, the coldest air in several years will plunge into our region. Morning high temperatures mainly in the 50s and 60s will fall into the 40s this afternoon as northwesterly winds abruptly increase to 15-25 mph with higher gusts. Lake Wind Advisories have been posted for all of our region through at least the early evening hours tonight.
The coldest weather of this outbreak will occur tonight and Tuesday morning, with low temperatures in the teens across inland locations, with low/mid 20s for North Central Florida and along the immediate coast. A hard freeze warning is in effect tonight through Tuesday morning, with 6 to 12 hours of hard freeze conditions (temperatures 27 degrees or lower) possible. In addition, brisk northwest winds near 15 mph, with occasional higher gusts, will drive wind chill readings during the predawn hours on Tuesday down to near zero in inland southeast Georgia, with single digits expected elsewhere inland and 10-15 degrees closer to the coast. A wind chill warning has been posted from the overnight hours tonight through the mid-morning hours on Tuesday throughout our region.
