Windy and Wet Wednesday, followed by near-freezing temps
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
The coldest air since 2010 is on the way to South Florida, arriving after a morning of wet and windy conditions Wednesday.
There is a chance of wind chills dipping into the 20s.
The morning on Wednesday will feature occasional showers and downpours with temperatures in the mid 60s. The front will pass early afternoon with winds becoming very gusty (30-40 mph) and temp dropping dramatically.
The falling temperatures will fall to near freezing for The Treasure Coast and mid-to-upper 30s for The Palm Beaches. No relief on Friday, with a chance of slightly colder temperatures at sunrise. Wind chills for both mornings will be in the 20s.
Snow in northern sections of Florida are possible Wednesday. Further north, a major Nor'Easter Wednesday evening will hit the northeast United States, with blizzard and hurricane-force wind gusts along the SE New England Coast.
The cold will persist in South Florida for several days, with the first warm up expected by Sunday.
