The various forecast models are only so-so in bring severe storms to Jacksonville. But, in Georgia? Whole different story as we should anticipate one, two maybe three individual severe storms later today (Tuesday).

Today will be warm, partly cloudy, and breezy. Expect to wake up in the mid 60s and warm up into the mid to upper 80s under increasingly more cloudy skies. Winds will be out of the southwest, building up to be between 15-20 mph with gusts over 30 mph during the afternoon hours, with the strongest winds along the coastline.

Showers and thunderstorms will move into southeastern Georgia during the late afternoon and evening hours bringing gusty winds, the possibility of small hail, lightning, and a low chance for an isolated tornado.

The line of storms pushes into Northeastern Florida after 7 p.m. and will be less intense than what Southeastern Georgia will see. The showers will be breaking up and fading across our southern counties after midnight.

Behind the rain? Cooler temperatures!

Wednesday and Thursday we will wake up in the chilly 50s and only warm up into the mid 70s under mostly sunny skies.

We warm back up to around 80 degrees Friday and Saturday.

Storms Tuesday night, cooler starting on Wednesday
