JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Today was gorgeous! We warmed up into the mid 80s under sunny skies with a light breeze out of the south-southwest. 

This evening will be gorgeous and mild, as the evening progresses expect increasing clouds and mild temperatures sinking down out of the 80s through the 70s. Winds will be out of the south between 5-10 mph. We do expect a brief round of showers to push into southeastern Georgia after sunset and die out as it approaches I-10 overnight. 

Overnight temperatures turn cool, sinking down into the upper 50s under increasingly cloudy skies. Winds will shift to be out of the north overnight, between 7-12 mph.

Saturday starts out partly sunny, with sunshine for a few hours, allowing our temperatures to climb into the upper 60s. Then expect clouds to move in and chilly temperatures, in the low 60s. Expect mostly cloudy skies and a cool breeze between 7-12 mph out of the north. Chances for rain are only around 20% and temperatures will only meander into the upper 60s for daytime highs.
