After two nights in the 20s, the coldest snap of the winter will last one more day, as today's high temperature won't make it out of the 50s.

Channel 4 meteorologist Richard Nunn says Monday morning's low at Jacksonville International Airport dropped to 22, with upper teens recorded on the Westside and North Central Florida. Temperatures | Forecast

This hard freeze folllows Sunday morning's low of 24, which broke the existing record low for the date by 2 degrees.  

While Nunn only forecasts a night of 59 Monday, the wind that make Sunday daytime temperatures brisk have died down.   Monday night's low will remain in the upper 30s, and a rapid warm up this week will return afternoon highs into the 70s by Wednesday.
