THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT...
A strong, Arctic cold front will continue to sweep through central
Florida this evening. Behind the front, another surge of very cold
air will spill across east central Florida on gusty northwest to
north winds, which will increase to around 15 MPH through tonight.

Low temperatures in the upper 20s are expected across northern
Lake and Volusia Counties, and in the lower 30s from around the
Interstate 4 corridor southward over the interior to near Lake
Okeechobee. A Freeze Warning is in effect for Volusia, Lake,
Seminole, Orange and Osceola counties for a duration of at least 2
hours of temperatures at or below freezing. Temperatures may briefly
reach freezing over northern Brevard and Okeechobee counties.

In addition, the combination of cold temperatures and the gusty
northwest to north winds will result in wind chill readings in
the 20s across most of the region, except for the immediate
Treasure Coast and barrier islands. A Wind Chill Advisory is in
effect for all of east central Florida tonight.

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.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northwest winds around 15 knots will increase to 20 to 25 knots by
late tonight, with seas of 4 to 6 feet building to 6 to 8 feet near
shore and up to 10 feet well offshore, especially over the Gulf
Stream. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
The cold temperatures will linger through Thursday night, before a
gradual warmup begins late in the week. Hazardous boating conditions
will be slow to subside beginning Thursday evening, and remain poor
offshore through early Friday morning.

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