The rain could become rather focused on Saturday and on the chilly side. Something we all need to watch as weekend outdoor plans could be in jeopardy! 

A look at our future weather reveals the possibility of some major cold spilling into the U.S. out of southern Canada. The latest forecast models regarding this cold surge show some fairly impressive numbers spreading steadily South. 

The leading edge of this chill enters the northern U.S. on Tuesday the 25th, heading through the plains, eastward into the upper Midwest and into the Great Lakes regions. From there, the cold slumps south into Texas on the 27th, establishing its reign across the southern states with a slow drift to the southeast coastal areas.

On Friday the 28th, the Arctic air takes over the entire central and eastern third of the nation. In terms of Florida weather during this time, models are generating lows in the 20s and 30s, daily highs would reflect 50s with ease through the period.
