MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- From the Storm Team Weather Center ...

A strong flow of colder air is established over the Atlantic coast of the U.S., and we'll feel its impacts in the form of breezy winds Tuesday and chilly temperatures all day.  The sky will remain clear in most cases, but as the winds pick up overnight, the surge of polar air will force nighttime temps to fall to near and below freezing for most of south Georgia and inland north Florida counties.  A light freeze is possible, with freezing and sub-freezing temperatures possible for two to five hours before and around dawn.  Winds will make it feel like the 20s at times, though lows will just fall to the lower 30s.  Coastal zones are excluded from a Freeze Warning, as lows there will be in the mid 30s.  Readings will be slow to recover despite the full sunshine; upper 40s are possible in south Georgia, with low to mid 50s south of the state line.  The cold surge retreats after midweek, as the subtropical upper flow drags in a minor disturbance with rain potential focusing on Thursday night and Friday morning.
