Freeze watch in central Florida – Weeks ahead of normal

“Major” cold front.

The National Weather Service issued a freeze watch for Sumter County through Thursday morning. Marion County could also see near-freezing temperatures.

“Patchy frost will form tonight, mainly outside the normally warmer city limits,” says Tom Terry, chief meteorologist for WFTV. “It would come weeks ahead of normal for most, so tender plants that are frost sensitive should be covered or moved indoors tonight. Also, make sure pets have a warm place!”

  1. Used to be oranges were grown as far north as the Carolinas.
    Now they only grow in the very south of Florida.
    Seems all this global warming is bad for warm weather fruits.

  2. My thermometer read 33 deg F. at 6 AM on the morning of 11/28. The temperature would surely have dropped lower except for the massive bank of artificial clouds and fake contrails that drifted over the area to lock-in long-wave infrared radiation so that it could not escape to space.

    • Oh so you are saying that Solar attenuation is out of scope? Therefor not examined or considered? No , No wait a minute, using these same methods when the Sun is in the sky during the daytime, a massive bank of artificial clouds and fake contrails that drifted over the area lock-in long-wave infrared radiation in outer space blocking same from reaching and heating the Earths surface. nice…. I agree. LOL.

  3. Yes, it was cold in east Sarasota Florida as it was 33.5 and a few patches of frost as only a few plants showed the cold stress like basil. It’s going to be a cold winter here in the south.
