Deep Freeze in Florida

A hard freeze warning was issued for the northern half of the state. Emergency management officials say Monday night is expected to be the coldest night of this winter season, and record-low temperatures could be broken in north Florida.

Fern growers checked their irrigation systems to make sure they will be ready to combat cold weather and shelters opened around the state as Florida prepared for freezing weather.

Temperatures were expected to get as low as the upper teens in north Florida, with the wind chill making it feel as cold as zero degrees.

In central Florida, low temperatures were expected to be in the mid-30s, and they were forecast to be around 40 degrees in South Florida overnight.
