Wow South Padre Island went to the 20s again. Hope nobody replanted coconut palms yet? 

What? Again?

One station had a low of 28 and one had a low of 27. It got colder there at 26N almost 25N than here at 51N and we had our worst winter in 12 years. Unfortunately we don't have averages as warm as there though! Will be interesting to see if any coconuts survived there.

Winter is not over in Northwest Florida. I think this was taken even a little after the temps went up a degree or two. (sorry for the reduced image quality, apparently the forum is compressing images after posting for some reason).

The gradient across FL was pretty decent this morning. Now lets see the rest of the US:

This graphic says it all for southern Lousiana...the freeze line as of 12:30 AM CST is already at I-10's doorstep (well into "zone 9") with a forecast of "widespread frost" for Lake Charles, Lafayette, and Baton Rouge.

NOLA is the place to be to escape the freeze....

The last gasp of winter heading into spring provided a really good illustration of how temperature can vary a large amount across short distances in Florida.  Vandenberg (KDVF), Tampa International (KTPA), and Peter O. Knight (KTPF) are all airports in Tampa, FL.  I was primarily interested in Vandenburg when I saw high 30s in northwest Lakeland on WUnderground on 03/21/2023.  There were a few records of 39F at this airport:

By comparison, Peter O. Knight (KTPF) recorded a low of 46F and the temperatures were much more stable since this airport is on Davis Island.

Tampa International historically records temperatures at the top end of what is experienced in the region.  This may be due to station siting.

The zip file contains the records for each of the Florida airports if you would like to look through them.
