JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today was saw clearing skies and the afternoon was warm and breezy. Tonight will be mild with building clouds late. Overnight lows will get down into the upper 60s. 

Thursday kicks off a wetter weather pattern, expect brief downpours to push onshore and move inland, the moisture is from the outer edge of a system we are monitoring in the tropics that is not expected to develop. The most rainfall will occur in our southern, coastal counties, while most of Southeastern Georgia may miss out on most of the rain. Expect low 80s for daytime highs and easterly winds between 10-15 mph.
