JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today was cool and beautiful. Sunny skies prevailed, but only warmed us into the low 70s in town, while the cool sea breeze kept the beaches in the chilly mid to upper 60s.
Tonight turns chilly quickly, with temperatures diving down into the upper 40s and low 50s. Expect clear skies and the chances for patchy fog early Thursday morning. The fog will be most likely in our inland counties, along and to the North of I-10.
Thursday will be beautiful as well, with a chilly start. Any patchy fog dissipates quickly as our temperatures warm nicely into the upper 70s. Expect a mild and sunny afternoon, with winds building out of the Southeast between 7-12 mph.
Friday starts out cool in the upper 50s with the possibility of patchy fog. Expect a lovely warm up Friday afternoon up to around 80°. Skies will be partly cloudy for the afternoon hours. Friday evening should be picture perfect as temperatures cool down through the 70s and into the 60s overnight.
Saturday is the better day of the weekend. We will start out in the low 60s with clear sunny skies, expect a fast warm up into the mid 80s for the afternoon. Expect partly cloudy skies during the afternoon and Southeasterly winds between 7-12 mph. There is only an 20% chances for an isolated afternoon shower.
Sunday starts off great, in the cool 60s. Expect sunshine in the morning, warming us up into the 70s. We will see building clouds during the mid day and afternoon hours. A cold front will push through our area, bringing 70% chances for showers and storms. Currently, the models disagree on the timing of that cold front. Here are the two scenarios- the faster model brngs the showers and thunderstorms through our area during the afternoon hours- the daytime heating combined with the instability of the frontal line could put us at a slight risk for isolated severe storms. The slower model brings the line of showers and thunderstorms through our are during the evening hours, the lack of heating during that time of the day would dial down the intensity of the storms.
