weather and water temps for New Year's?

I'm coming for a weekend and I see there is a nasty cold front in at the moment.

I'm pretty sure the water is too cold to dip in, but how about walking barefoot on the beach?

I'm attending a wedding at Anna's Veranda at Inlet Beach and staying at the Palmetto Inn in Panama City for 3 nights centered around New Year's Even, and I can't decide how/what to pack!

Any help, even fashion advice for a 3pm outdoor beach wedding on NYE, would be appreciated!

Today's surf zone forecast.


General weather info:


Accuweather and others have longer-term predictions. There's signs that the peninsula will have a cold week from December 30 through at least January 4, so that would mean a cold beach indeed at Panama City.

It is going to be a bit chilly for the next few days (lows in the 30's - 40's) but it looks like the sun should be out a good bit. Your feet may be a little cold if you are just standing barefoot on the beach but walking may not be bad. I would plan on layering your clothes for the wedding - there is almost always a good breeze at the beach so it can be a little chilly even if the temps are in the 60's and the sun is out. This time of year is so unpredictable - can be hot one day and really cold the next. We have all the details for the NYE events on our website if you need any additional info: www.visitpanamacitybeach.com. Have fun!
