Cold Front Pushes Across Florida

MELBOURNE, Florida -- A cold front that swept across north Florida and the panhandle on Monday is making its way down the Florida peninsula today.

As of 4 a.m., the cold front was located over Central Florida.  The front will move across the Space Coast and Treasure Coast by daybreak. Much cooler air will overspread the area behind the front before dawn with temperatures remaining in the 50's through the morning commute. 

A band of light showers preceding the front over the Treasure Coast will cross end this morning while producing less than a tenth of an inch of additional rainfall. Northwest wind gusts of 20 to 25 mph are possible this morning and afternoon as the colder air pushes into the area. 

A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect for Central Florida. 

The frontal boundary will then continue to move southeast across South Florida today with mostly cloudy skies and scattered to numerous showers possible. The greatest shower coverage is expected across the Lake Okeechobee region and Palm Beach County this afternoon.
