JACKSONVILLE, Fla – A major cold front is not arriving and you won’t even get a break in the heat during the day, but if you are an early riser you may feel a bit of fall in the air across the greater Jacksonville area.
For a few short hours over the next few mornings, temperatures are expected to dip into the mid to upper 60s.
Most likely locations will be west of I-95 for upper-60s with mid-60s blanketing parts of interior Florida and Georgia.
It was the first week of June, nearly three months ago, when we last saw a couple nights dip to around 66 degrees.
After a month in September when every day topped above average, the dry air setting in will help lower nightly lows to a typical October threshold.
Jacksonville’s typical average low temperature on Oct. 1 is 66, and that drops to 55 by the end of the month.
Heat and humidity has been anything but average during September, a chart-topping hottest average ranking for Jacksonville.
The cities average nighttime low typically dips below 70 by Sept. 18, according to NOAA’s NOWData average over the past 30 years.
Enjoy a taste of Autumn now and expect to feel more consistent cool by the end of the October.
