After today no more heat for at least a week

Weekend brings showers and cooler breezes

JACKSONVILLE, Fla – Heat is kicking in this afternoon but it won't stick around long.

Just one more day is all it takes before a front ends the hot streak we had all week.

Dry weather is expected today, with mainly sunny skies for NEFL, and a little more clouds close to Georgia.

Hot above average temps will range in the lower to middle 90s west of Highway 301. Record highs in SE GA are possible. Highs along the coast will be in the middle to upper 80s. 

Lows tonight will generally range from the upper 60s inland to the lower 70s coast.

A front approaches closer tonight slightly increasing the potential for a few showers near the coast but better chances will hold off until Saturday afternoon & evening.

Rain chances will be 50% Saturday and Sunday as a front moves in. Breezy onshore flow leads to scattered showers
High temperatures cool slightly over the weekend dipping into the 80s.

Overnight low temperatures remain above average ranging from the upper 60s to mid 70s.
