Super Saturday weather for Jacksonville today!

Highs approach 80° and could be the last "10" on the Gaughan Gauge for a while

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today will be the last "10" on the Gaughan Gauge for a while, maybe 2 weeks!

Expect a beautiful and sunny warm up, with afternoon highs topping out in the upper 70s to low 80s for inland areas and in the mid to upper 70s along the beaches.  The wind (finally!) turns offshore, out of the southwest between 5-15 mph.  There are no chances for showers Saturday.

Sunday, a cold front pushes through early and that changes the forecast.  Current model timing has the front pushing through I-75 around 4am - 6am and near I-95 around 8 am - 10 am.  A skinny line of showers will push through ahead of the front. The front will clear the beaches by the afternoon, with increasing wind and cool temperatures as the skies clear.  Lows will be in the upper 50s to low 60s to start and then will give way to highs in the 60s behind the front.  Winds will build out of the northwest between 5-15 mph.  Rain chances  are at 40 percent.

Thanksgiving is NOT looking good! 

Rains could be heavy across the area as a low pressure (non-tropical) develops in the Gulf of Mexico and heads towards Jacksonville. The result could be some heavy rains for NEFL and SEGA.

Hourly forecast:
6 a.m. 55°
8 a.m. 58°
10 a.m. 64°

​Sunrise 6:55 a.m.
Sunset 5:28 p.m.
