JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today’s storms will start to fade around sunset and we will be left warm and muggy overnight, with temperatures sinking down into the mid 70s.
Independence Day starts out with sunshine and rapidly warming temperatures. Winds will be light out of the southeast and you will notice building clouds during the mid day. Temperatures top out around 90° with feels like temperatures around 100°. We expect especially inland, southern thunderstorms to fire up after 2p.m. and stick around through 7p.m. After 8 the potential for rain drops and we should dry out in time for fireworks. The sea breeze should save areas along and to the east of I-95 and keep them dry. The exception to this would be in our southernmost coastal counties, like St Johns and Flagler, which will most likely see a few storms.
