From the Sun-Sentinel-
Temperatures dipped into the low 40s around West Palm Beach this morning as South Florida got a pre-Thanksgiving chill.My readers are probably saying- "TFM you're just feeling a bit of what we put up with but worse for 4 months out of the year. Don't expect any sympathy from us."
At 6 a.m., the National Weather Service reported temperatures of 37 in Fort Pierce, 41 in West Palm Beach, 50 in Boca Raton, 52 in Fort Lauderdale and 54 in Miami.
If you're already tired of bundling up, there's good news -- forecasters expect temperatures to climb back into the 70s just before Thanksgiving.
TFM isn't looking for sympathy. There is one concern for Florida when temperatures drop this low.
Today's low temperature in the Glades was expected to be in the 40s, lower than in coastal metropolitan areas, the National Weather Service said.The citrus industry. If temperatures drop too low, oranges and other tropical fruit are destroyed. So never wish a cold snap upon those living in Florida. You may just end up paying for it the next time you buy some orange juice.
But farms in Belle Glade and nurseries in western Palm Beach County did not plan on taking any added measures to protect crops because they did not expect temperatures to reach harmful levels.
