Coldest air since January on the way for parts of SW Florida

Published: Updated:

Today is November 30th. This will mark the “official” end of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.

While we currently have nothing to worry about, after a long, destructive, and record-breaking season, don’t let your guard down.

You can always trust the Weather Authority to keep you updated on any tropical threats.

In the eastern Atlantic Ocean, a large non-tropical low pressure system is centered just north of the Madeira Islands. The low could acquire subtropical characteristics as it meanders over the open water for the next few days.

Conditions are much less favorable late this week, so the window of opportunity is small. Regardless of subtropical formation, this system will continue to produce strong winds and locally heavy rains in the Madeira Islands through Tuesday.

Right now, the National Hurricane Center is giving it a 40% chance of development.

Back in Southwest Florida, we are tracking the strongest cold front of the fall months yet. The rain from earlier today has ended, and the cloudy skies will gradually clear overnight.

By the time you wake up tomorrow morning, temperatures will be down in the 40s & 50s, with clear skies, and breezy conditions!

Wednesday morning will be even colder, with temperatures will plunging into the 40s and 30s for parts of Southwest Florida. For some, these will be the coldest temperatures since January.

Besides the colder air, we’ll also have less humidity and a breezy wind. This will make it “feel” even lower when you step outside Wednesday morning!
