Decreasing clouds produce partly cloudy skies as highs reach upper 70s

Calm, warm weather pattern continues into Saturday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Skies will become partly cloudy allowing high temperatures to the upper 70s in our inland zones today. Afternoon temperatures along the coast will reach the low to mid 70s. Tonight temperatures will fall back into the 50s as skies clear.

A lack of cloud cover overnight along with light winds will likely give way to another of foggy morning come Saturday.  Those low-level clouds won’t stick around for long, clearing skies by the afternoon hours will allow another nice warm up into the mid to upper 70s. Sunday we'll warm up into the mid-70s after a cool start in the upper 50s. Rain chances will remain low throughout the weekend.

The warm, dry stretch continues into next the first part of next week, before big change “chilly” changes arrive. Rain on Wednesday (50% chance) will lead a cold front that will deliver a blast of cold air that will keep highs in the 50s starting Thursday, and by next weekend will likely have our first freeze here in Northeastern Florida.
