JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A strong cold front has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a freeze watch for much of Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia as meteorologists predict low temperatures will linger.
The Times-Union reports that the low temps will last at least through Tuesday morning.
The Freeze Watch will be in effect until Monday morning, with temperatures expected to range from 29 degrees to 32 degrees in the region, according to the forecast.
The low was 35 degrees Sunday morning at Jacksonville International Airport – about 15 degrees colder than the normal 50 degrees.
A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible for at least two hours.
Plants, pets and the elderly might need protection from the cold.
