Mild and cloudy evening, rain headed our way Wednesday afternoon to turn us chilly

Jacksonville’s weather forecast won’t be this pretty for the rest of the week

Mild with patchy fog.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today was warm, topping out in the lovely upper 70s. The cloudier skies make for a slow cool down this evening, meandering down into the low 60s. Expect patchy fog to form late, after 5a.m.

Wednesday starts out with fog clearing as we warm up into the upper 70s. Expect cloudy skies and breezy southwesterly winds around 15 mph.

Expect rain in Nassau, Duval and Clay after 3pm, and into St Johns county by 5p.m.. Rainfall amounts will not be much, around a tenth of an inch. A more thin, less intense round of showers will push through later, during the evening hours.
