JACKSONVILLE, Fla -

A week many people just north of us will not likely forget anytime soon!  Winter cold, then ice, sleet, snow, power outages, then a full moon and now an earthquake.  Here in Jacksonville, we have been spared most of the worst of all of this.

This morning a few daybreak showers, followed by sunshine, BREEZY conditions throughout the day.  Winds will gust to 30 mph as temperatures hold in the low 60's.  Rebecca has more starting at 7am!

Earthquakes happen all the time, but rare earthquakes due seem to focus around a full moon.  The full Snow moon officially happened at 6:45pm, about 3 hours before the earthquake!  Strange but true!
