Cold Invasion Plunges Southward

Extremely cold weather is coming to the Deep South this weekend.

In northern Florida starting Friday, all nights will be well below freezing, but there are no big orange groves up there.

All the major citrus production takes place in central and southern portions of the state.

There, the coldest night will be Sunday, when the freezing line almost gets to Miami.

The middle 20s that will happen through interior counties Sunday night will be enough to cause light damage to the orange groves.

Worst-case scenario is a situation that would produce low 20s and teens for several hours through the citrus region, but fortunately, that will not occur.
