Winter cold snap hits the Big Bend

Jan 4, 2012

 

 Big Bend area residents should try to keep warm at least for the next day or two, especially with Tuesday night being the coldest night of the winter season so far. As Sascha Cordner reports, though Wednesday won't be as cold, it will still be chilly.

New Year's Day marked the winter season's first hard freeze, and the temperature gradually got worse on Tuesday with lows in the mid-20s. But, Tallahassee Meteorologist Don Van Dyke with the National Weather Service says Wednesday should be a bit better as well as for the rest of the week:

"And, as we head into Wednesday and Wednesday night, we're expecting high temperatures on Wednesday in the mid-50s and lows Wednesday night, warming into the low to mid-30s and then moving into the rest of the week, Thursday we're expecting middle 60s and mid to upper 60s by Friday with overnight lows around 40."

Despite strong gusts of chilly winds on Monday, Van Dyke says residents should not expect any breezy conditions for the rest of the week.
