Record tying heat fades, warmth continues until the weekend

Jacksonville’s weekend forecast looks chilly & breezy

Turning cool tonight

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We saw record challenging warmth today, the record high for today for Jacksonville is 89°, set in 2017 and we tied the record, by hitting 89°. After a beautiful clear day, we see a few clouds for the evening hours ahead of a weak, dry front that will push through overnight.

We may wake up to fog, the temperature drops within a degree or so of the dewpoint (a threshold for fog to form) between 4-8 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Wednesday starts out in the upper 60s and warms up into the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. Winds will be out of the northeast, between 7-12 mph.

Thursday starts out around 70° and warms up into the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Friday will be a bit warmer, topping out in the record challenging upper 80s under mostly sunny skies.

The weekend looks much cooler and rather breezy. Saturday starts out in the upper 50s and low 60s and only warms up into the crisp low 70s. Expect northeasterly winds around 15 mph. Sunday starts out in the cool mid 60s and warms up to around 80° under partly cloudy skies. You can read a detailed break down of this round of Fall-like weather here...
