Winds of change pick up tonight, windy and cool weekend

Jacksonville’s weather forecast looks like a Nor’easter sets in

Turning chilly overnight

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After a warm, sunny, lovely Friday, the winds of change blow tonight. A dry cold front will push through overnight, making for tumbling temperatures down into the chilly low 60s overnight.

Saturday starts off chilly and doesn’t warm up much, only into the mid 70s. Expect plenty of sunshine to start and the some building clouds. Skirt Alert! It will be very windy, with northeasterly winds between 15-20 mph and gusts of up to 30 mph. Saturday night turns chilly quickly.

Sunday starts off in the cool mid 60s and warms up into the mild upper 70s and low 80s. Expect fewer clouds than Saturday and slightly less wind, but still 15 mph sustained northeasterly breezes.

Next week looks pretty consistent, waking up around 70° and warming into the mid to low 80s under partly cloudy skies. Northeasterly winds will be between 10-15 mph each day and will bring an isolated coastal shower or two onshore. High tide flooding will be a persistent issue until the winds fade.
