Wind Advisory is In Effect From 9 AM EST /8 AM Cst/ This
Morning to 6 PM EST /5 PM Cst/ This Evening,
, Hard Freeze Watch is In Effect From Late Tonight Through Monday Morning…

the National Weather Service in tallahassee has issued a wind advisory, which is in effect from 9 AM EST /8 AM cst/ this
morning to 6 PM EST /5 PM cst/ this evening. a hard freeze watch remains is in effect from late tonight through monday morning.

in the wake of a strong low pressure center and trailing cold front, very strong high pressure will build into the region. the gradient created over the local area in between the departing low and building high will create strong and gusty northwest winds today. expect winds in excess of 20 mph with frequent gusts in excess of 26 mph. for this reason a wind advisory was issued. winds will begin to decrease this evening.

this high pressure will advect a very cold and dry air mass across the local region tonight into monday morning. temperatures will plummet to the low to mid 20S for at least 4 to 6 hours in the coldest spots. this will generate a widespread hard freeze.
therefore a hard freeze watch was issued which will likely be upgraded to a warning later today.

precautionary/preparedness actions…

a hard freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures below
26 degrees are possible. these conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.

a wind advisory means that sustained winds or frequent gusts of 26 to 39 mph are expected. winds or gusts this strong can make
driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. use extra caution.
