Freeze warnings to go into effect Tuesday in parts of Central Florida

Another shot of chilly air has entered Florida.

Highs for Monday afternoon reached around 65 degrees around Orlando and the surrounding area but was a notch or two cooler for areas up north.

Highs in the 60s will mark an extended run of below-normal temperatures for our area. Typical highs this time of year are normally around 71 degrees.

On Monday night, skies remain clear and temperatures will be quite cold. Expect the 30s in most locations away from the immediate beachfront.

Freeze warnings kick into effect by Tuesday morning at 2 a.m. and will expire by 9 a.m. Alachua, western Marion, Citrus, and Levy Counties are all in the freeze warning areas.

"Make sure to protect your property and bring in outdoor pets. Also, a reminder to be careful with space heaters should you choose to warm yourself that way," FOX 35 meteorologist Jayme King says.

While much of the viewing area is not in the freeze warning area, patchy frost is likely in many inland areas. The immediate coastal areas will remain frost-free but temperatures will still be rather chilly there as well.
