600 PM EST Thu Jan 27 2022 THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. .DAY ONE...TONIGHT. .WIND AND SEA IMPACT... Northeast winds increasing to 20 knots will build seas to 7 and 9 feet over the Gulf Stream and 5 to 7 feet near shore. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for all marine legs of east central Florida. .RIP CURRENT IMPACT... A Moderate risk of life-threatening rip currents continues. Entering the chilly surf is not recommended due to choppy surf and dangerous rip currents. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. A low pressure center will develop off the Florida east coast Friday, then intensify into a powerful winter storm as it moves northeast off the eastern U.S. seaboard. The storm will drag a strong cold front through east central Florida Friday evening, followed by the coldest air of the season, which will impact all of east central Florida Friday night through Sunday night. Low temperatures early Saturday morning will drop to between 35 and 40 degrees from Osceola and Brevard counties northward, with wind chill readings reaching the upper 20s and lower 30s. Expect lows of 40 to 45 degrees for the rest of the area, with wind chills in the mid to upper 30s. Saturday's highs will only reach the upper 40s to lower 50s for most of the area. Saturday night's lows will be even colder, with upper 20s to lower 30s across most the area away from the barrier islands. Lows could reach 25 degrees in a few spots in northeast Lake and northwest Volusia counties, where a hard freeze is possible. Lowest wind chills will be in the lower to mid 20s. After another chilly afternoon Sunday, very cold temperatures will return again Sunday night, with readings in the mid to upper 30s, and lower 30s for normally colder wind sheltered areas. Winds will become light to calm, which will bring the risk of another widespread frost Monday morning, similar to a week ago. Be prepared to take protective action against the upcoming cold snap. Always dress appropriately for cold weather. Use extreme caution when operating space heaters! Make sure there is nothing around them that could become a fire hazard. Fuel based heaters should only be used in well-ventilated areas to avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning! Over the adjacent Atlantic, poor boating conditions will continue on Friday, than become extremely dangerous with gale conditions developing Friday night through late Saturday night. Conditions will slowly improve starting Sunday afternoon. A Moderate risk of dangerous rip currents will continue through at least late week. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Spotter activation will not be needed tonight. $$ Sedlock
