JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today we saw an earlier start to time the storms firing up and we expect similar timing tomorrow. Since the storms pushed through early, we are drying out and heading into a nice evening. Overnight temperatures will sink down into the mid 70s.

Sunday starts out with partly cloudy skies and warms up into the low 90s. We’ll see a mid day to early afternoon round of showers and storms pushing across the state from the Gulf. We may see a second round of storms firing up during the afternoon hours, and then pushing offshore around 7p.m. Drier air in Southeastern Georgia will limit the potential for rain there, with the bulk of Sunday’s showers dropping rain on Northeastern Florida, in particular Gainesville to St Augustine areas.

Monday we wake up in the mid 70s and warm up to around 93°. Expect 50% chances for showers and storms to fire up, mainly during the afternoon hours.

For the rest of the week and into next weekend, we will see more widespread afternoon showers and storms, with 60-70% coverage of the rain. The higher chances for showers will limit our afternoon highs to be between 89-91°.
