PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Happy Friday! We made it to the end of the work week, but this weekend will be a rough one with chilling temperatures.
Today a cold front swept through which kept our skies gloomy, but we stayed dry across NWFL. Skies are clearing out this evening and skies will be mostly clear throughout this weekend.
The cold front will bring harsh temperatures to the Panhandle tonight with lows sitting in the upper 20s to low 30s, so most of us will be at, or below, freezing tonight. Tomorrow’s high temperatures will only warm into the mid to upper 40s and Saturday’s lows will dip into the 20s again. The thermometer will read very cold temperatures tonight and tomorrow, but it’s going to feel even cooler thanks to strong winds. Winds tonight will come in from the NNW around 20 miles per hour. Winds Tomorrow will blow through around 15 to 20 miles per hour from a NNW flow. The breezy conditions will bring wind chills in the upper teens to low 20s tonight and wind chills in the 30s and low 40s tomorrow afternoon.
A Wind Advisory has been issued for coastal Walton, Bay and Gulf counties until tomorrow morning. Coast winds could be even stronger around 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts around 35 to 45 miles per hour.
A Wind Chill Advisory encompasses everywhere from Walton county towards the peninsula until tomorrow morning.
A Hard Freeze Watch will stick with us until Sunday as we will see cars, pipes and plants freeze over this weekend.
Make sure to bring your pets indoors, protect your pipes, cover your plants, and bundle up!
