Wind chill triggers hazardous weather statement for South Florida

The overnight low has so far dipped to 51 degrees in West Palm Beach this morning, the coldest nighttime temperature of the winter season.

But it’s the cold temperature, combined with the wind chill, that triggered a hazardous weather statement from the National Weather Service for this morning and tonight.

Wind chill temperatures early this morning are ranging from the mid to upper 30s west of Lake Okeechobee to around 40 in the Naples area. In West Palm Beach, the wind chill is mid to upper 40s, but south through Miami-Dade County and along the coast.

Tonight, wind chill temps are expected to be nearly the same as this morning, but a tad warmer along the coast.
