The longest cool snap all winter

At least 6 days of temps below 70

JACKSONVILLE, Fla – It started yesterday with a front passing Jacksonville. Temperatures quickly dropped from the mid 70s down into the 60s,  and now, we won't see the 70s until Thursday.

We haven't had an extended run of temperatures below 70 all winter long. We could go 6 days before recovering those milder temps.

We felt a few short cold snaps but freezes have been limited this winter. The first freeze hit early in November but December was warmer than average and the month only ended up with two freezes during the last two days.

Temperatures will dip into the mid 30s Saturday morning and again to start the week. Cold yes, but  urban areas around Duval could miss out on freeze.

We may close out January with only two freezes so far during our coldest month on average in Jacksonville.
