After a hot and sunny New Year’s Day, temperatures are forecast to drop into the 40s on Monday in the Daytona Beach area.
Melbourne’s National Weather Service predicts a clear and beautiful weekend with highs in the 70s above 80.
This all changes at the end of the day on Sunday when the wind picks up.
“We predict that a cold front will move quickly across Florida on Sunday evening or Sunday evening,” said Robert Haley, a meteorologist with the NWS. “We will have some precipitation up front, maybe a few thunderstorms and good cooling behind.”
There is a 30% chance of rain in the region on Sunday evening and the Monday morning low is currently forecast to reach 46 degrees cool.
“Some might say cold,” Haley said, noting that if the front doesn’t pass before Monday morning, temperatures might not drop that low. “The timing of the front will determine how cool he gets.”
A peak in the 1960s is scheduled for Monday.

Highs will return to the 70s by Tuesday and the rest of the week is expected to be dry and hot.
Haley said there was a small chance of showers over the Atlantic Ocean.
“Some of them could reach the coast, but that would be the extent of the problem,” he said.
Coastal and offshore conditions can be dangerous this weekend, so boaters should exercise caution. Haley said conditions would start to deteriorate on Saturday and likely remain poor on Sunday and Monday.
