Waking up this morning, it was quite a change for Tampa Bay. After day after day with the air conditioners putting in some overtime in the middle of winter, we had to hunt down a light jacket this morning. Temperatures in the Tampa area dipped into the 40s… not cold enough for snow.
For our neighbors to the north in the Florida panhandle, it was a different story. Check out this video from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. They say it was 75 degrees up there yesterday, but at 3am, you’d have never known it as a pretty heavy snow began to fall.
Well how’s this for a temperature change?— OkaloosaSheriff (@OCSOALERTS) January 3, 2022
From 75 degrees at 3 in the afternoon to snow at 3 am captured during patrol in the Lowe’s parking lot on Beal by B-Shift Central!

This cold weather will not last by the way. In the Tampa area, we’ll be in the mid 70s for the rest of the week.
