By John Gaughan - Chief meteorologist

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After record breaking warmth, today's high was 92° summer-like showers and storms are pushing through Jacksonville.

Evening storms are moving through the entire area. These showers and storms are ahead of a cold front. Best chances for Southeastern Georgia will between now and 9:00p.m. The storms/showers push into Northeastern Florida between 7-12:00 midnight. We may see isolated showers behind the main line of showers and storms overnight and into Tuesday. Easterly winds will develop and build dramatically overnight, especially along our coastline. 

Formerly severe storms are pushing through Duval county at this moment. Very heavy rainfall, lots of lightning and winds gusting to 45 mph. These storms are moving into Clay and St. Johns counties, where stormy weather will continue to move through there until midnight.

Areas to see greatest impact will be along and just east-west of I-95 and the St. Johns River.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy, breezy with isolated beach showers. Temperatures will feel like our first taste of Fall, only topping out in the mid 70s. Winds will be northeast around 20 mph, with gusts over 30 mph. Temperatures will be noticeably cooler and the skies will gradually clear out during the day. 

Tuesday night temperatures will dip into the mid to low 60s making for a crisp & cool start to Wednesday.  

Wednesday will be cool, topping out in the upper 70s, but strong, gusty onshore winds will bring a few coastal showers onshore, especially in St Johns, Putnam, & Flagler counties. Elsewhere it will be cooler & drier. 

The strong, persistent onshore winds will lead to higher than normal tide levels by about a foot and a half. This could lead to a Coastal Flood Advisory by the middle of the workweek.
