Frost Advisory Tonight
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Inland counties expect frost early Tuesday morning, placing them under a frost advisory from 3:00am through 8:00am.  Temperatures dip into the mid to low 30's by the early morning hours Tuesday, under clear skies with calm winds.  A light freeze may be briefly achieved especially the inland-most counties.  Tender and tropical plants may be damaged by the frost.  

Heating your home safely is of the utmost importance during times like this, and does not include the use of space heaters overnight, unsupervised- they lead to house fires.  

Pipes are not in danger of freezing tonight.  

The record for overnight low temperatures today was set in 1968 and was 26°. 

From Lake City to Gainesville, the temperatures will dip to 33°-35°.  Along highway 301, temperatures reach the mid 30's overnight.  Along I-95, temperatures reach 35°. To the East of I-95, especially closer to the beaches- temperatures are much milder, closer to the upper 30's and low 40's.
