Steamy heat for Jacksonville as Laura races onshore this morning

After three generally dry afternoon/evenings those storms return starting Friday

Afternoon Heat indices >107°

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Thursday we expect another hot and sticky, but mostly dry day. We wake up in the muggy mid to upper 70s and warm up into the low to mid 90s with negligible chances for afternoon storms. That means another especially sticky evening with a very slow cool down.

Friday starts off with 70 and partly cloudy skies, but as we warm up into the low to mid 90s we expect 50% coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms to fire up after 2p.m. and cool us down.

The wetter weather pattern sets in for the weekend, with 50% coverage of the afternoon storms on Saturday and 70% coverage of afternoon storms on Sunday.

Our summertime weather pattern holds strong into next week, with highs in the low 90s and scattered afternoon storms expected.
