Election Day forecast the hottest November 6th ever!

Record heat hits the Poles in Jacksonville

10-Day Forecast

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Record high today (Election Day, November 6th) Tuesday's high temperature was 88°, the old record high was 86° set back in 2003.

So, it is back to short sleeves and shorts for at least for two more days. Both Wednesday and Thursday as we will see afternoon highs in the 80s. 

Record highs for Jacksonville

Why will we be so warm? Southerly winds ahead of a dying cool front will help pump up our temperatures Tuesday. Southerly winds will be 8-15 mph.

Showers are not expected Wednesday, yet given all the heat, we should see a few "pop-up" afternoon showers around Jacksonville. These should be fairly small and brief. Therefore leave the umbrella at home as if you get caught in a rain shower, just wait it out.

In Georgia, a little bigger probability of showers and thundershowers will exist. Greatest chances of rain will be in the afternoon and evening hours (4-8 pm.)

The rest of the work week will be a wait and see condition. As mentioned a weak cool front will slowly drape across Southeastern Georgia and Northeastern Florida Thursday and Friday. Rain chances will be moderate (around 50%) and a few thundershowers will produce rainfall up to an inch but it appears the highest chances will be in South Georgia
