The rain along the front pushing into the Mississippi Valley never reaches us but the cold will Saturday night.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – You will certainly want to plan your outdoor activities this weekend around the weather. There won't be any rain but temperatures will take a drastic swing Saturday to Sunday.

We could be looking at readings near 80º Saturday afternoon under warm sunshine. It wouldn't be surprising to see some areas over northeast Florida about 10 degrees warmer than our November 73º average. 

West winds around 10 mph should keep the coastline mild even though the water temperatures have dipped into the upper 60's.

The warmth will quickly come to an end  during the night as a dry cold front sweeps across southeast Georgia Saturday by afternoon and pushes through Northeast Florida Saturday night.

Temperatures will drop to 40º Sunday morning and possible near freezing by Monday morning.

A large Canadian high will crank up the NW winds plunging the chill south. 

Sunday's highs only reach the low to mid 60s despite blazing sunshine. Winds drop off Sunday night allowing for colder conditions. Inland areas Sunday night are expected to fall mostly into the mid 30s well inland...but around the mid 40s along the coast.

No rain expected for the upcoming week even with our next cold front passing through the region Thanksgiving Day. The drought in the Panhandle could spread east with no rain relief in the forecast for Jacksonville through the next 10 days.
