Jacksonville's weather forecast warms up briefly

By Rebecca Barry - Meteorologist
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Today turned out beautiful after a damp start. We topped out in the upper 70s under partly cloudy skies, with the exception of our coastal areas, where we saw persistent sea fog and cooler temperatures. 
 
Tonight coastal fog will be an issue, creeping inland and lowering visibilities. Overnight lows will sink down to around 60°.
 
Tuesday the fog should dissipate during the late morning hours as our temperatures warm up. We will soar into the low 80s quickly under partly cloudy skies. Expect gusty winds out of the southwest around 15 mph. We have good chances for rain to the north of the state line and in our southern, coastal counties. Duval, Nassau, Baker, and northern Clay counties may miss the bulk of the showers. The best chances to see the rain start in the afternoon hours and peak during the early evening. 
 
Tuesday night the cold front behind the showers pushed through and we start to dry out and cool down. expect temperatures to get down into the low 50s. 
 
Wednesday is chilly with partly cloudy skies. Afternoon temperatures will only warm into the mid 60s. 
 
Thursday the snuggle weather continues for Valentine's Day, waking up in the low 40s and warming up into the cool upper 60s. Expect mostly sunny skies. 
 
Friday starts out nicely, in the mid 50s but expect increasing clouds as we warm into the low 70s. Friday night into Saturday, a round of rain heads our way. 
 
Saturday starts out damp, but dries out as we climb into the upper 60s. Sunday will be chilly and sunny, starting out in the upper 40s and only warming into the upper 60s.
