Tuesday morning's temperature hit 26 degrees which is lower than the old record of 28 degrees in March of 1968. A lot of people were affected, especially those whose work and day to day lives directly relate to weather.

It's not quite time to put away the warmer wear as winter seems to be making one last stand against spring. In fact, the probability of it being so cold at this time of year is a mere ten percent.

Parks Camp with the National Weather Services said, "We had a strong cold front come through and then we had high pressure which settled in right over us. We had clear skies and calms winds and that lets the heat escape rapidly."

Monday night, the homeless shelter says it took in more transients than normal. And the spring planting season required some improvising-- covering up the blossoms at the last minute.

Jason Rock with Tallahassee Nurseries said, "We had a lot of that put away, so we had to take it out. Those late March freezes do happen in Tallahassee, so we had to get everything covered up pretty quick."
