This is not your imagination, and no, you’re not used to the cold. Temperatures have risen in Florida and we could see warmer temperatures this weekend. Some areas may witness record highs.

But don’t pack those jackets away just yet.

By early next week, another cold front will bring temperatures lower.

Here’s the five-day weather forecast from the Florida Department of Emergency Management, plus an early peek at what’s to come next week.

Active weather alerts issued throughout Florida

Florida weather forecast for January 24 and 25

An area of ​​high pressure along the western Atlantic Ocean will continue to bring warmer and wetter temperatures across the state.

Storms: Scattered showers are expected to develop and move north along the Panhandle and parts of the western Big Bend on Wednesday (35-65% chance of rain) and Thursday (50-85% chance of rain). An isolated strong or severe thunderstorm or two could drift into the far western Panhandle Wednesday night.

A cold front moving east from the lower Plains could bring isolated thunderstorms to the western Panhandle, especially Thursday, then spread to northeast Florida.

The Storm Prediction Center expects a marginal risk (Level 1 of 5) for severe weather along the western Panhandle through Panama City where strong to severe thunderstorms could develop throughout the day Thursday, but mostly during the late evening and overnight hours.

Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will be able to produce lightning, damaging wind gusts (45-60 mph) and heavy rain. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

Conditions in the rest of the state are expected to be mostly dry, but some light rain may be possible during the afternoon just along the East Coast on Thursday.

Temperatures: Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be above average for this time of year, and there is a chance of record high temperatures in Tallahassee.

High temperatures can be expected in the low to mid 70s across the Panhandle with high cloud cover and precipitation chances, while the rest of North Florida can expect high temperatures in the upper 70s and near 80 degrees. Throughout the peninsula, high temperatures can be expected to reach the low 80s by the afternoon. Low temperatures will be in the 60s across the state, with South Florida and the Keys seeing lows in the low 70s.

Storms: A cold front is expected to move east across the Panhandle into Northeast Florida on Friday, bringing scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. There is a chance of some scattered strong to severe thunderstorms later in the evening hours Friday across the Panhandle.

Stronger thunderstorms on Saturday may be able to produce lightning, damaging wind gusts (45-60 mph) and heavy rain along the Panhandle. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

A second cold front is expected to move east along the Panhandle and Big Bend on Saturday, once again bringing precipitation changes across Northeast and North Florida Saturday night.

Temperatures: High temperatures on Friday and Saturday will reach the low to mid 70s across the Panhandle and eastern Big Bend, while high temperatures in western Big Bend and Northeast Florida will reach the upper 70s and lower 80s. Central and South Florida can expect high temperatures in the low 80s and approaching the mid 80s.

Record high temperatures may be possible across parts of inland Central Florida later in the week and into the weekend. Low temperatures on Friday will remain above average for this time of year in the 60s and 70s.

As the cold front moves through late Saturday, low temperatures across the Panhandle will drop into the low to mid 50s. Ahead of the cold front, low temperatures in Northeast Florida will remain in the low 60s. Central and South Florida can expect low temperatures in the mid to upper 60s, with low temperatures in the low 70s along Southeast Florida and the Keys.
