JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We are amidst the longest stretch of continuous days with rain since July of 2018 (9 days in a row) and it looks likely we will see rain for the next several days, challenging our all time record of longest days of wet weather. The old record wet streak is 17 days in a row from 2001.
This old record may hold as we will see a slight pattern shift, from early and often showers and storms to primarily evening storms.
What’s the difference? The upcoming storms will be few but bigger and heavier. Most will be in the evening hours.
Friday starts out with sunshine, under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will soar into the mid 90s with feels like temperatures between 103-107°. We expect afternoon showers and thunderstorms to fire up, with 70% coverage across our area.
Saturday starts out mostly sunny, then turns hot with mid 90s for the afternoon hours. Widespread showers and thunderstorms fire up during the afternoon into the early evening hours.
Sunday starts out with sunny skies and more mid 90s are on the way for the afternoon hours. We expect scattered showers and thunderstorms to fire up during the afternoon hours.
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday look similar, topping out in the mid 90s with 60% chances for afternoon storms.
