URGENT – WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TALLAHASSEE FL
138 PM EST FRI FEB 15 2013

one of the coldest nights so far this winter in our area
expected on saturday night…

high pressure will settle into the eastern gulf coast region on saturday night in the wake of a strong cold front. clear skies and light winds…in addition to the very dry nature of the air
mass…should support strong radiational cooling with temperatures quickly falling below freezing in the mid to late evening. analog and probabilistic guidance based on model forecasts suggests around a 50 percent chance of a hard freeze…which is high enough to warrant a watch for all of our non-coastal areas.

Hard freeze watch in effect from late saturday night through sunday morning…

the National Weather Service in tallahassee has issued a hard freeze watch, which is in effect from late saturday night
through sunday morning.

* temperature: lows 24 to 26 in most spots. 8 to 10 hour
durations below freezing expected.

* impacts: due to the warm winter thus far, and a lack of a hard freeze, some varieties of plants may have started spring
growth early. therefore some plants may be more susceptible to damage and extra care may be needed.

precautionary/preparedness actions…

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