JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today was hot, especially for inland areas.  An onshore breeze kept coastal areas in the more comfortable 80s. The good news? Tonight we are cooling down nicely! With an abundance of dry air, our temperatures will drop pretty quickly out of the 80s and into the 70s. The best part? waking up to the mid to upper 60s Friday morning.

Friday will be dry, with low to no chances for showers. 

Saturday's forecast will not be a washout, but we will have a round or two of coastal showers wandering onshore. You have 50% chances to see the rain.  Expect  building northeasterly winds in the afternoon hours bring a few coastal clouds onshore.
