JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Brrrrrr! We are waking up chilly, in the mid to low 40s across inland areas and mid to low 50s along our coastline. Expect sunny skies, low humidity, and northerly winds around 10 mph. Temperatures will climb into the mid to low 70s for a few hours this afternoon. Expect another chilly evening, with temperatures sinking down into the 40s overnight.

Wednesday will be windy! Expect northeasterly winds between 15-25 mph. The NWS may issue a wind advisory for the day, especially for St. Johns and Flagler Counties, where the northeasterly winds will be sustained near 25 mph with frequent gusts of 35-40 mph throughout the day on Wednesday. It’s jacket weather ALL day Wednesday, waking up in the 40s and only making it into the mid to low 60s for a daytime high. Because of the northeasterly winds we will see flooding during high tide.

Thursday the northeasterly winds will be in the 10-15 mph range, so high tide flooding will continue. We wake up in the upper 40s and low 50s and we will warm up into the low 70s under partly cloudy skies.

Friday kicks off a more mild (and humid) weather pattern with temperatures warming into the mid to upper 70s under partly cloudy skies. Northeasterly winds continue in the 10-15 mph range through the weekend and may bring an isolated shower or two onshore. This pattern continues into the weekend.

Crisp and cool today, windy tomorrow
