Winter Comes to the Coast . . . But Only For a Day or Two

A Beautiful Rare Crispy Cold Winter Day on St. Joe Bay

We rarely experience here on the Cape what the rest of the country might call winter, but last night we went down into the mid-30’s, frigid regions we only reach every couple of years. With the cold snap came gale-force winds out of the north, producing super-low tides; this morning on the bay we woke to find dry land all the way out to the sand bar as this photo shows.

The humidity is un-Florida-like low, too, currently at 55%, producing crystal-clear blue skies and great visibility. But our “winter” won’t last long; tomorrow it’s back to normal with a forecast high of 68.
