THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT...
Conditions remain very dry and cold behind a recent strong, Arctic
cold front. Very cold air will again spill across east central
Florida tonight into early Friday morning. Low temperatures will
reach the upper 20s in northern Lake and northwest Volusia counties.
Temperature durations of 5 to 9 hours at or below freezing are
expected in north Lake and interior Volusia counties, with 2 to 5
hours in coastal Volusia and southern Lake.

Further south, across Seminole and Orange counties, low temperatures
will reach the lower 30s outside of highly urbanized areas late
tonight. Temperature durations of 2 to 4 hours at or below freezing
are expected with up to 6 hours possible in normally colder
locations.

A Frost Advisory has been issued for Brevard, Osceola, Indian River,
Okeechobee, and Saint Lucie counties. Low temperatures are forecast
to be between 33 and 37 degrees under mostly clear skies and light
winds. This will allow the temperature to fall to or very near the
dewpoint which should allow areas of frost to form.

Many home fires occur during cold weather episodes. Use extreme
caution with space heaters. Keep the heater away from all material
that may be combustible such as pillows, blankets and curtains.
If you will be outside from this evening through sunrise, be sure to
dress appropriately for the cold weather, including a hat and
gloves. Take necessary precautions to protect sensitive vegetation
from the frosty conditions.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northwest to north winds of 15 to 20 knots will produce hazardous
seas of 6 to 7 feet offshore and near shore south of Sebastian
Inlet.  A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect through late
tonight. Small craft near shore should continue to exercise caution
tonight between Flagler Beach and Sebastian Inlet.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Although not quite as low as this past morning, the cold
temperatures will linger through Friday morning, with widespread 30s
expected. A Freeze Warning has been issued for Lake, Volusia,
Orange, and Seminole counties. A Frost Advisory has been issued
through early Friday morning for much of east central Florida
outside of the Freeze Warning, except southern Saint Lucie and
Martin counties.

A gradual warmup will occur from Friday through this weekend.
Winds and seas will subside from Friday through this weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed tonight.
