This was good cold. Our temperate fruit plants got some critical chill-hours. Only the most sensitive plants are showing light damage and nothing was destroyed. 

The Monarch caterpillar on the Hawaiian milkweed looks happy munching away this morning.

Glad I was in PR where the weather was perfect!...and I was mostly worry free. Glad I wasn't here to get all freaked out.

Something to watch mid-week:

Rapid onset of pronounced CAA Wed night, with mins
near freezing (perhaps a few degrees below) across primarily
inland Volusia and Lake Counties. Suspect a Freeze Watch will need
to be issued eventually for at least these areas and perhaps
farther south/east depending on timing and intensity of surge of
cold air.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Melbourne FL
349 AM EST Wed Jan 17 2018

.DISCUSSION...

...Wind Chill Advisories Issued For All of East Central Florida
for Tonight...

...Freezing Temperatures Look Increasingly Likely for Lake and
Volusia Counties...

...Freeze Watch for Tonight Expanded Southward...

Current...Arctic cold front has pushed across the eastern Florida
panhandle and is encroaching upon peninsular north Florida early
this morning. To the south of the front, the high pressure ridge has
all but collapsed, with a light N-NW drainage flow in place across
ECFL. 3AM temps were in the U40s-L50s north/central and M50s south.

Today-tonight...well-advertised Arctic front will plow southward
across the peninsula this afternoon, moving south of Lake Okeechobee
early in the evening. Early afternoon highs will only reach L-M60s
across north Lake/Volusia, and U60s-L70s from early to mid afternoon
to the south. Strong post-frontal CAA with increasing/breezy NW/NNW
winds through tonight, which will allow temps to plummet into the
30s for most areas, with widespread WCIs in the 20s over all but the
immediate Treasure Coast (near the ICW/over the barrier islands) by
sunrise Thursday.

Latest temperature guidance indicates freezing temps remain most
likely across Lake/Volusia Counties, while near-freeing (33-34F)
temps reach well down into the interior. The Freeze Watch has
been expanded to include Northern Brevard/Osceola/Okeechobee
Counties. Min temps in the 33-35F range also possible over rural
interior Brevard/Indian River Counties.

Thu-Thu night...High pressure will center over the ARKLATEX region
as ridge axis noses east toward the Carolina coast overnight
Thursday. Even with plentiful sunshine Thu, temps will struggle to
peak around 50 across the far north CWA, to mid 50s central and
upper 50s/near 60 far south. Synoptic pattern will favor a weak
drainage (NW) flow during the second half of Thu night, with
radiational cooling allowing min temps to drop into the 30s across
inland locales as well as to the coast north of the Cape. Do not
anticipate the need for a freeze watch/warning, however isolated,
wind-protected areas across Lake and interior Volusia counties may
briefly approach/reach freezing around sunrise. With boundary
layer flow veering to an along-shore component across the
north/central coastal plain and slight onshore component farther
south, min temps from the Cape southward likely to remain in the
40s (perhaps even lower 50s along the Martin coast).

Fri-Sat...shortwave ridge develops aloft Fri in advance of mid-
level disturbance which weakens as it approaches the central Gulf
Coast Sat. Meanwhile, surface high builds slowly eastward across
lower Gulf states and the FL panhandle. Light NE gradient flow
Fri veers more easterly Sat and begins to tap region of higher
moisture upstream across the Bahamas. Warming trend will commence
with maxs Fri jumping 8-10 degrees compared with Thu, yet still
remaining below normal, especially along the coast from the Cape
northward where trajectory over very cold shelf waters will limit
temps to the upper 50s. Elsewhere 60s. Not as cold Fri night, but
with a large temp gradient from NW interior (upper 30s) to SE
coast (mid to upper 50s). Max temps Sat returning closer to
normal, albeit still a few degrees below. Coolest along the coast
from the Cape northward where temps will peak in the mid 60s.

Sun-Tue...Weak disturbance aloft weakens further as it reaches SE
coast. Next mid-latitude trough broadens as it extends from Great
Lakes region to SE US. This system likely to drag a weakening cold
front into the peninsula sometime between late Mon and late Tue.
Front expected to slow as it approaches/reaches CWA as trough axis
deamplifies. Small shower chance introduced to forecast Sun (SE
CWA), continuing Mon (areawide), with period of considerable
cloudiness and scattered showers Tue when frontal boundary
most likely reaches/slows across CWA. Temps continue to moderate
as winds acquire a more southerly component. Climo temps forecast
Sun, then a few degrees above normal Mon before returning to a
little below normal Tue due to clouds/showers and slight cold air
advection with N/NE wind shift.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR. Gusty NW winds from around 310/13G19KT veering to
330-340/8-12KT tonight.

&&

.MARINE...
Today-tonight...NW-N winds 10-12KT increase and back slightly to NW
at near 20KT with initial post frontal surge. Winds veer again to
NNW as they increase further to 20-25KT tonight. Seas build to 6-8FT
near shore and 8-10FT offshore. A SCA will go into effect this
afternoon for the entire MAOR, with a cautionary Statement in place
up until then.

Thu-Thu night...Strong post-frontal Northerly flow veers NE
overnight and lessens markedly as surface high noses east toward
the coast north of the area. Seas 5-7 ft nearshore and 8-10 ft
offshore Thu morning subside steadily through the
afternoon/overnight as winds relax significantly. Seas 3-4 ft
nearshore and 4-6 ft offshore by daybreak Fri.

Fri-Sun...Surface high builds eastward, becoming centered over the
FL panhandle Fri, then departing into the western Atlantic over
the weekend, with ridge axis becoming established near 30 degrees
latitude. Extended period of favorable boating as winds become
light NE/E Fri, E 5-10 kt Sat and E 10 kt Sun. Seas 3-4 ft Fri,
except up to 5 ft over the Gulf Stream during the day, subsiding
further to 2 ft or less nearshore and up to 3 ft offshore over the
weekend.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
Thu...Dewpoints have trended a litle lower than previous guidance,
which should result in min RH reaching 30-35 percent far inland,
mainly Lake County, even with high temps only reaching near 50
degrees. N/NE winds will be less than 10 mph.

Fri...While dewpoints begin to recover some, so do max temps.
Result should be one more afternoon of min RH near 35 percent over
far interior, mainly Lake County. Light N/NE winds 5 mph or less.

Yikes. Flash freeze after a nice sunny day. Going to bring in the potted desert roses amd cover the big ones in the ground. Hopefully it doesnt burn the blooms of the hong kong tree orchid the is blooming out back. Maybe it will finally trigger the plum and blueberries to go dormant though. Irma messed up their cycle when it burned them up and triggered a fall flush of new growth.

30F 1/2 block from the river in Rockledge this morning at 5:50. First time below 32F since we moved to this house in 2014. Automated weather stations are showing a lot of 20s west and north. This is one heck of an advection freeze. It was 63 when I was out running last night at 7pm.

Surprised to see 33F at 6:00am this morning in Satellite Beach. They called for 35F. It was 66F at 7pm last night, that's a 33degree drop over night!

Thursdaynight/Fridaymorning:


MAV/ECS MOS guidance has come in colder areawide for tonight ranging
from L30s north, M30s interior central-south, and U30s-L40s for all
but the far SE (M-U40s in coastal Saint Lucie/Martin Counties). This
necessitates hoisting a Freeze Watch for Lake/Volusia Counties for
late tonight/early Friday morning.

Fri-Sat...Warming trend commences....

Watching the RAWS network. Freezing temps in spot on Merritt Island. High 20s west of the lagoon.

Amazed to see that 29F at KSC.

Safe to say my bananas, angel's trumpet, and bleeding heart vine are nuked. Juanaloa "goldfinger" is probably going to get hurt pretty badly too.

.DISCUSSION...

...Freezing Temperatures Expected Again late tonight but not as
widespread as last night...

This cold outbreak outperformed early this morning with freezing
temperatures reaching Lake Okeechobee and Fort Pierce. A Hard Freeze
occurred north and west of Orlando. Sanford reached 25F breaking
their record low of 26F set in 1977. Orlando missed their record low
(26F 1977) by 1 degree.

Despite considerable sunshine, temperatures will be slow to rise
through the 40s. Forecast high temps look good with widespread 50s
for highs despite considerable sunshine. In fact, Volusia county
will struggle to reach 50. Marine stratocu has begun to push onshore
the treasure coast as low level flow veers toward the NE. This
should limit high temps to the upper 50s there. Despite the much
below normal temps, do not think any record cool highs will be tied
or broken today.

Attention has turned to tonight with the potential for another
freeze event but limited to northern sections. High pressure over LA
this morning will spread east with a ridge axis extending across
north FL tonight. This will allow a light N/NW drainage flow to
develop at the sfc but a light NE flow will exist just above the
boundary layer. This should bring some marine clouds across the
Treasure coast resulting in noticeably milder temps preventing any
frost or freeze concerns.

Although dewpoints will be gradually rising/recovering, they are
forecast to remain below 32F across the northern sections. And with
good radiational cooling expected there under clear skies and very
light winds, expect freezing temperatures once again north and west
of Orlando, though not as cold as this morning. So will likely
upgrade the Freeze Watch in Lake and Volusia to a Warning and
tentatively planning on including Seminole and Orange counties,
based on what the new 12Z model guidance suite depicts. Finally,
with lighter winds and rising dewpoints, there is a better chance
for frost outside of the freeze warning area, including Brevard,
Osceola and Okeechobee.

I had ice on my roof in Melb Bch (proper). I have a freeze plug in my solar collector which dripped (as per design) and the trickle had frozen on my roof.
