Late evening showers may precede heavy rain on Monday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Today's highs will return to the upper 70s and lower 80s under partly cloudy skies. A westerly flow  and afternoon heating will help trigger isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms, however, this threat is mainly over Southeastern Georgia. 

The potential for severe weather starts tonight as a strong low pressure system develops across the Southeast. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted areas north of I-10 for a Marginal Risk of Severe Weather this evening. Damaging winds, and hail are the primary hazards.

Strong to severe storms are possible late Monday as a squall line forms ahead of a front as it moves across that expected to enter Southeastern Georgia. The risks for storms continues through Tuesday before well-below average temperatures move in by midweek.

Marine Forecast: High pressure will shift S and E of the waters during the weekend. A series of low pressure systems will track to the north of the waters. This will maintain a southwesterly flow in the 10-15 kt range and 2-4 ft seas through the weekend.
