ORLANDO, Fla. – Well, arctic air is funneling into Florida and this means that the coldest temps of the winter so far will be moving in for a couple of days.

Freeze watches are up for Alachua, Marion, Sumter and Citrus counties. A freeze warning is in effect for Levy County. This means temperatures late tonight, early Tuesday morning could get down to 32 degrees — freezing — for a short period of time.

Despite full sunshine this afternoon, expect gusty winds and highs struggling to make 60 this afternoon. It will certainly be quite cool all across the FOX 35 viewing area. Areas near Gainesville and Ocala will struggle to break the mid-50s, even though skies up that way will also feature ample sunshine.
