The coldest air of the season so far will spread over east Central Florida tonight, according to the National Weather Service in Melbourne, Florida.
Weather conditions will begin to cool down throughout the day – leading to a pleasant fall day.
After sunset, temperatures will quickly drop into the 50s, and overnight lows will drop in the upper 30s across the far north, to low 40s elsewhere.
Temperatures will fall to between the upper 30s and 40 degrees, across most of east to central Florida, with lower 40s in Brevard County.
A few wind-protected areas across the north interior could drop to near 35 degrees.
A northwest wind of 5 to 10 mph will result in wind chill readings in the lower to mid-30s.
A moderate risk of rip currents will continue along area beaches today. The greatest threat will be after 3:30 PM this afternoon, due to tidal effects. Always swim within sight of a lifeguard and never swim alone.
Boating conditions are poor to hazardous over the Atlantic waters where a Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all marine areas except the nearshore waters south of Sebastian Inlet, where small craft should still exercise caution.
