Coldest Southwest Florida Christmas Since 1990’s

Looks like us Floridians are going to have quite a chilly Christmas, for our standards.  Jason Dunning from NBC-2 says reports are showing this will be the coldest Christmas in Southwest Florida since the mid 1990’s!

Just how cold will it be?

According to Mike’s Weather Page, could Christmas morning snowflakes could fall in the Gulf? It can happen IMO. But an outside chance… yes. Gulf moisture flowing in from the west combining with some cold AM temps could drop in a few flakes. Latest EURO here showing on top of my house haha. It’s fun to dream right?” he adds.

So, while it doesn’t look like we will get the flurries this far south, here’s what we can expect.

Fort Myers is looking at a low of 39 degrees into Christmas morning, according to a Weather Channel report.  Highs on Christmas Day are expected to stay below 60 degrees, at 56 degrees.

That’s definitely not what we’re used to down here! There probably will be a lot of indoor time this year!

SWFL Restaurants Open On Christmas Eve And Day

The holiday season is here and if you’re not in the mood to cook this year, you may be wondering if there are any restaurants open on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day in SWFL. The answer is YES!

For many, Christmas is a time to gather with family and friends, share a meal, and exchange presents. But what do you do if you don’t want to cook? Fortunately, there are plenty of places where you can enjoy a delicious meal and someone else will even do the dishes.

With Christmas Eve landing on a Saturday this year, the main issue you’ll run into are long lines or limited available reservations. With Christmas on a Sunday, some of these places are normally closed and will be, but some will open for special for the holiday.

According to News-Press, many places will feature special holiday menus or discounts. You may see different holiday hours or have to make reservations, so be sure to check before you head out. The list below is just local SWFL restaurants and some of the larger chains, but there are many fast-food restaurants open as well.

Merry Christmas!
