Strong cold front will cross northeast Florida late today

Freezes are expected every night into the weekend

Live Oak — From the National Weather Service in Jacksonville:

A cold front will cross Northeast Florida this afternoon and wind speeds will increase substantially across the region. A lake wind advisory is in effect for land areas for west winds 15 to 20 mph and gusts to 30 mph this afternoon. Hazardous marine conditions will occur over the coastal waters. A few showers will accompany the front, but mainly affect northeast Florida.   Freezing temperatures are forecast for tonight and wind chills in the teens and 20s will complete the bitterly cold feeling.

A reinforcing dry cold front will cross the region Thursday night. A hard freeze is possible early Friday and Saturday mornings for portions of inland southeast Georgia and far inland areas of northeast Florida, which would require a hard freeze warning.

Impacts

-  Low wind chills may result in frostbite, lead to hypothermia with more prolonged exposure

-  An extended period of hard freeze conditions may cause exposed water pipes to burst. These conditions are also potentially hazardous to sensitive vegetation, people, especially children and the elderly, as well as pets.
