Highs struggle to reach mid-50s today before temperatures drop tonight
Freeze Watch in effect from Saturday night through Sunday morning
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Partly to mostly cloudy skies linger through the early afternoon. Highs will only reach the mid-50s this afternoon, enjoy the slight bit of warmth while it lasts as temperatures are expected to take a nose dive tonight. Clearing skies will prevail through the late evening into the overnight hours.
With high pressure building in and another dry front passing through the region over the next 24-hours, we’ll experience mostly clear skies and near-to-below freezing temperatures going into Sunday morning.
A Freeze Watch is in effect for our inland zones from Saturday night into Sunday morning as temperatures west of I-95 are expect to fall below 32°. Cold air is the dominant weather feature on Sunday as highs will struggle to reach the low-to-mid 50s even with a fair amount of sunshine.
Another widespread freeze is on the horizon for Sunday night going into Monday morning, but by Monday afternoon highs should rebound to low 60s.
As the week continues a number of quick-moving fronts will slip through the region with another shot of strong cold air expected for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Isolated rain chances will increase towards the latter part of the workweek.
