Tonight's forecast
Tonight's forecast (WJXT)

We topped out in the mid to upper 60s under mostly sunny skies and breezy northeasterly winds. Tonight will turn chilly pretty quickly after sunset and the winds will fade after midnight.

Grab a jacket and head outside and look up! The beautiful, bright full “snow” moon rises at 6:47 and should be spectacular when it breaks the horizon. Later on, grab a slightly heavier jacket and head outside around 11p.m. NASA has a launch window opening at 11:03p.m. for the Atlas V rocket to orbit the sun, and viewing conditions couldn’t be more perfect to see the launch. Sunday night will be clear and cool, turning chilly and dropping down into the low 50s.

Monday marks the return of mild weather, but may start out foggy, especially between 6-9a.m. We start the work week in the low 50s and warm up quickly, helping any fog to clear. Expect mild afternoon temperatures topping out in the upper 70s and partly cloudy skies.

Tuesday will be cloudier and a little warmer. We will wake up in the low 60s and warm up to around 80°. We have a 20% chance for showers, mainly in Southeastern Georgia.

Wednesday looks almost perfect, waking up at 60° and warming up into the low 80s under partly cloudy skies.

Thursday will be even warmer, waking up in the low 60s and warming up into the low 80s. There is a 40% chance for showers late, mainly to the north of the state line.

Friday looks like the next round of widespread showers in our future. Happy Valentine’s Day? We start out in the low 60s and warm up into the mid 60s before 60% chances for showers and storms blossom across the area. The way the models look as of right now, most of the rainfall would be to the north of I-10.
