Florida is in the middle of their coldest winter in three decades, and it's not over yet.
This winter has been the coldest in Florida since 1981, according to a recent report by the National Weather Service (NWS). Miami Beach is enduring it's second-coldest winter since records have been kept.
"We could see temperatures below freezing this week in northern and central Florida," said AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Frank Strait.
These spots could have temperatures as low as the upper 20s.
"The polar jet stream, which generally determines the primary winter storm track, dipped farther than normal into the central and Eastern United States," the NWS stated in their report.
However, that is about to change. Strait said that the jet stream's pattern will begin to flatten for this weekend.
"Cold air won't get down as far south in that situation."
Temperatures are going to begin to increase by Saturday, which is good news for those early spring breakers.
