Roller-coaster ride for our temperatures
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Your typical household refrigerator is kept between 33-35° and sure enough, for most of Tuesday, our temperatures will remain like a refrigerator.  Overnight winds and clouds have slowed our overnight cooling to a point where we will threaten, but not break the record low for the day.

The record low for both Tuesday and Wednesday morning's is 21 degrees. 

Plants, pets, pipes, people and if you have one, pools all need attention throughout the day and for a second night.  So, be vigilant and stay smart as there is an amazing bounce-back heading our way by Saturday.
