A piece of the arctic surge has reached South Georgia and the Big Bend region, and we’ve felt its arrival with afternoon temperatures hovering in the 40s with a stiff northwest wind. Breezes won’t relax very much overnight, and, considering the depth of the cold air flowing in on those winds, a frigid night is expected. Some passing upper-level clouds won’t halt the cold trend. Air temperatures will fall into the upper teens across inland sections, with low to mid 20s in the southeast Big Bend and coastal areas. Wind chill values will make it feel more like the single digits overnight in south Georgia, and between 10° to 15° for apparent temps in north Florida. Sunshine galore Tuesday will only warm us into the upper 30s north to lower 40s southeast. Another round of hard-freeze temps is forecast for Wednesday before conditions recover with an east wind by midweek. We won’t get to above average levels before the end of the week.
