Cold Waves in Tampa

A cold wave (known in some regions as a cold snap) is a weather phenomenon that is distinguished by a cooling of the air. 
Specifically, as used by the U.S. National Weather Service, a cold wave is a rapid fall in temperature within a 24-hour period requiring substantially increased protection to agriculture, industry, commerce, and social activities. The precise criterion for a cold wave is determined by the rate at which the temperature falls, and the minimum to which it falls. This minimum temperature is dependent on the geographical region and time of year.In the United States, a cold spell is defined as the national average high temperature dropping below 18 °F (8 °C).Cold Life Guard
