Daytona Beach, FL - Temperatures are likely not going to rise past 70 degrees for the remainder of the week and into the weekend thanks to a cold front coming through the Central Florida area.

The National Weather Service office in Melbourne reports that a cold front will be in place by Wednesday night that will see lows go under 40 degrees for that night and the 3 nights after it.

Meteorologist Matt Volkmer tells WNDB a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for Volusia County between 4am and 9am Thursday morning due to expected sustained winds of 15 miles per hour and gusts into the 20’s. That advisory is also in effect for Flagler County between 3am and 9am Thursday morning.

“You should bring in the pets,” Volkmer added. “We’re not really expecting any freezing or frost [Wednesday night]. The next night, we may have more of a concern for some frost inland.”

Because of the wind, Volkmer says the wind chill factor will make temperatures feel like they’re in the low 30’s to high 20’s between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

No real precipitation is expected with the cold front coming in, which will be at its worst on Thursday. The expected high is in the low 50’s for that day.

Friday will see highs hit in the mid-60’s before falling to the mid-50’s on Saturday. It’ll jump up to mid-60’s again on Sunday.
