The weekend’s warmer weather will be a distant memory tonight as a piece of arctic air comes barreling down into Southwest Florida, sending night-time temperatures into the 30s.

Some widely scattered rain will signal the arrival of the front Monday morning, but rain coverage should only be around 30 percent through the morning. The biggest impact from today's front will be a sharp drop in temperatures by the afternoon, and temperatures won't stop falling until we reach the 30s Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Most of us will manage to stay above freezing Monday night, but it's possible to see near-freezing temperatures deep inland. For those of us closer to the coast, our temperatures should only drop into the mid to upper 30s. The National Weather Service has issued freeze watches for Hendry and Glades counties through Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will end up being a raw, windy day with highs probably only able to reach the mid 50s, and that's even with plenty of sunshine.
