EOC Cold Weather Alert #1
COLD TEMPERATURES EXPECTED OVERNIGHT
A cold front is moving through west central and southwest Florida this afternoon. A reinforcing cold front will move through the region late tonight and early on Tuesday. In the wake of the second front an increasing northwest to northerly wind flow will usher in a much cooler and drier air mass with temperatures falling into the 30s and 40s during Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Low wind chills in the upper 20s to lower 30s are expected in our area overnight Tuesday and Wednesday.
STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO PREPARE FOR COLD WEATHER
- Consider the needs of pets during this time. Do not leave pets outside in the cold weather.
- Cover or move plants that are sensitive to the cold temperatures.
- Consider running pool pumps overnight during freezing temperatures to prevent damage.
- Residents are encouraged to monitor to local media outlets or the National Weather Service https://www.weather.gov/tbw/ for current weather information. The EOC is not activated at this time.
