Weekend with be dealing with tropical sun, showers and down south tropical storm

Jacksonville’s weekend weather will have a blue sky start on Saturday only to see more tropical downpours through Sunday

Saturday morning - Starts off "ok"

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The best part of the weekend will be Saturday morning. Slightly drier air somewhat limits our clouds and showers. Temperatures will be warm, in the upper 80s. We have a chance to stay drier for the afternoon hours, but it looks less and less likely thanks to Tropical Depression 19 in South Florida right now that is moving into the Gulf- it may drag a round of downpours across our area around and after 5 p.m. As the depression moves back into the Gulf of Mexico, there will be a band of deep tropical air (see purple area) that come sweeping up the Peninsula, the impact in Jacksonville will be the possibility of a wave (or two) of downpours during the game on Sunday.

Game day forecast has those downpours and so... bring your poncho to the game.

Weekend temperatures will not vary much with sunrise temperatures around 73° and afternoon highs nearing 90° with feel-like temperatures around 100°.

Next week’s highlights includes, more tropical downpours on Monday, then a mid-week nor’easter (yes, winds and possibly heavy rain) and of course watching the tropics for another possible hurricane (after Paulette), possibly named Teddy.

Must be 2020.
