Brrrrr! Cold front blasts the Sunshine State

Last Update: 9:57 am

OCALA, FL (AP) -- Floridians, break out your fleece jackets.

Forecasters say an arctic cold front is expected to pass through the state starting Tuesday, with temperatures expected to hit 30 degrees in Marion and Alachua counties; the record low temperature of 30 degrees in Ocala was narrowly missed on Monday.

Hard freeze warnings are expected for much of interior north Florida for Tuesday night, where temperatures will fall into 20s and cause patchy frost by sunrise on Wednesday.

State officials urge folks to use safe heating sources, bring pets inside and use extra caution if planning outdoor activities due to the enhanced wildfire danger with all the dry air.

Pro tip: put on some real socks, people. ;)

And people wonder why Florida is so often mocked. Even their own officials think large sections of the populace are slightly dim. :(
