Storms fade after sunset, Saturday afternoon looks wet

Jacksonville’s weather forecast dries out next week

Storms fade, mild and muggy overnight

Today the afternoon storms fired up around 2pm and they will start to fade around sunset. Some of us could see heavy downpours within the storms, helping with our rainfall deficit and fire danger.

Overnight will be muggy with temperatures cooling down into the mild low 70s.

Saturday we wake up in the low 70s with partly cloudy skies. Expect building clouds during the morning hours and warm temperatures climbing into the upper 80s. Expect widespread showers and thunderstorms to fire up after 3pm, initially in Southeastern Georgia and later in Northeastern Florida. The storms will linger later in Northeastern Florida, even after sunset in our southern, coastal counties. We may see some heavy downpours within the strongest storms.

Sunday starts out in the low 70s and warms up quickly to around 90 degrees. Expect fewer showers during the afternoon, with 40% chances to see the rain.

Monday kicks off a sunny, drier, breezy, less humid, not AS hot weather pattern. We will only warm into the mid 80s on Monday and Tuesday. Expect cool, crisp evenings in the 60s, perfect for opening up the windows for a few hours. Expect breezy winds out of the northeast around 15 mph.

Wednesday is a day of transition, warming into the upper 80s after a cool, crisp morning.

We will be back in the low 90s on Thursday and Friday with sunny, dry skies.

Drying out for next week
