TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) - Frigid air is upon us for the next couple days. Temps this morning starting off in the mid 20s with wind chills in the teens. Hard freeze warnings and wind chills advisories are in place til the mid-morning for the bitter cold. Despite the full sunshine, temps this afternoon will be cold as well only climbing to the mid and upper 40s. Hard freezes are likely to be reissued tonight with actual air temps tumbling to near 20° but at least the wind will slack off. Make sure to monitor the 4P's through Friday morning: people, pets, plants, and even have those pipes at a steady drip this morning and then turn them back on overnight. Our record low will be shattered overnight. The previous low is 27° set back in 1993, which I am confident we'll get below heading into Friday morning. Temps quickly rebound heading into the end of the work week and into the weekend. Expect mid 50s for highs on Friday and then temps stay above freezing heading into Saturday morning, bottoming out around the mid 30s. Upper 60s in store for Saturday afternoon and Sunday looks even warmer with the mercury climbing to the mid and even some upper 70s. A few isolated showers are possible as a front approaches very slowly. Rain chances exist early next week with temps moderating back into the mid 60s for highs. On the back side of the system, numbers fall slightly, but not as vigorously as we're currently seeing. Highs near 60° for Tuesday and in the low 60s for midweek.
