Temps to dip to 40 degrees in mornings for Indian River County

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — While the next three mornings could see temperatures drop to 40 degrees, the coldest weather this week was expected to be felt about sunrise Thursday. That’s when Indian River County will see wind chill values hover between the upper 30s and lower 40s, meteorologists say.

“It will stay cool for the next few days and nights,” said Scott Kelly, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Melbourne. “The mornings are typically the coolest part of the day around sunrise. There will be no freezing temperatures or frost.”

A cold front moved into Indian River County on Sunday, followed by cooler and drier air flowing through the area this week. The days will be sunny, while the nights will have a mix of partly cloudy and clear skies.

Tuesday will have a high temperature in the upper 60s, which will drop near 50 degrees at night, meteorologists said. Wednesday will have a high near 70 degrees, which will fall to the lower 50s in the evening.

Temperatures will climb to the upper 60s on Thursday, which will slide the upper 50s at night, weather experts said. Friday will have a high near 70 degrees, which will drop near the mid-50s at night.

“There will be a warming trend on Thursday night and Friday morning,” Kelly said.

Saturday and Sunday will have highs in the low 70s, which will fall to the low 60s in the evenings, meteorologists said. Kelly reminded residents with space heaters indoors to use caution.

“Keep the (space heaters) away from pillows, blankets, curtains and other combustible materials,” Kelly said.
