Warm-up on the way in Central Florida, but freeze still possible for some areas

ORLANDO, Fla. — Although Central Florida is headed into a big warm-up, a few areas may see a freeze one more time Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, Channel 9 certified meteorologist George Waldenberger said.


Overnight temperatures are again falling for the night. By morning, things won’t be as cold as the past few mornings, Waldenberger said.

However, western Marion County will be the coldest spot in Central Florida, with a freeze possible in some neighborhoods for a fifth straight night. Morning frost is possible across Marion County for the early Wednesday morning hours.

Wednesday afternoon is looking great, with widespread 70s and sunshine that could allow you to take your lunch break outside, Waldenberger said.
