A little bit of Buffalo is arriving in Jacksonville, Fla., this week.
It has nothing to do with football, but it's making northern Florida residents shiver.
Jacksonville was bracing for four consecutive nights below freezing for the first time in seven years.
Public officials are asking motorists to stay off of roads because of a possibility of snow, according to the Florida Times-Union.
Reports show the city is also closing some government buildings. And humanitarian organizations are opening cold overnight shelters.
“We anticipate hundreds of people will want to come in off the streets who normally don’t want to come in off the streets," Penny Kievet, executive director of Jacksonville's City Rescue Mission, told the Times-Union.
The same Arctic air that's expected to drop Buffalo's temperatures below zero over the next three nights is also forecast to plunge as far south as central Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and the Florida panhandle.
Don't think the chill in Florida will be any sort of advantage for the Bills in Sunday's NFL Wild Card game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, however.
By the time of the 1 p.m. kickoff, temperatures are expected to rebound to near 60 degrees under mostly sunny skies, the weather service said.
Here's a comparison of the forecasts for Jacksonville and Buffalo over the next few days:
