A mass of cold air will drop Jacksonville-area temperatures to near record lows into the morning on Thursday.
 
Temps across Northeast Florida will be unseasonably cool on Wednesday, with most areas stuck in the 50s throughout the day. Temperatures will drop quickly after sunset Wednesday.
 
An area of high pressure will cause some temps to drop to the mid-20s inland and in the low 30s along the coast. 
 
Temperature sensitive plants could be killed by these low temperatures and any temperature sensitive plants should be brought indoors this evening.
 
Pets should also be brought indoors to protect them from the cold.
 
The Salvation Army opened a shelter at 900 Adams Street in downtown Jacksonville Tuesday through Friday in anticipation of freezing weather. 
 
The good news? This could be the last time Jacksonville sees freezing temperatures for months. Temps are expected to be back in the mid-70s by the weekend.
