Storms building in Georgia

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Today was hot and sunny, temperatures varies from the upper 70s in Georgia to the upper 80s in Florida. Breezy southwest winds gusted as high as the mid 20 mph range.

We expect a few storms to pop up this afternoon in our southern and coastal counties like St Johns, Putnam and Flagler between 4:30 and 7 p.m.

Tonight a line of showers and storms will begin to push into Southeastern Georgia, we have the potential for a few severe storms to pop up to the north of the state line. The main concerns are gusty winds, hail, and the possibility of an isolated tornado.

Overnight the storms will progress very slowly further south, into Northeastern Florida, weakening in intensity throughout the night.

Friday is a Weather Authority Alert Day for the inconvenient chilly rain that will last most of the day. We expect rainfall totals to be between half an inch of rain and an inch and a half, with the heaviest rain over inland Southeastern Georgia. Temperatures will be at their warmest in the morning, around 63° and will get cooler instead of warmer through the day, with daytime temperatures hovering around 57°

Friday night the front behind the rain pushes through and we turn chilly, with frost possible, especially over inland Southeastern Georgia. Overnight lows will range from the mid 30s to low 40s.

Saturday will be sunny and chilly, topping out in the upper 50s with a northeasterly wind around 10 mph.

Sunday looks a tad better, waking up in the low 40s and warming up into the mid 60s.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday look pretty awesome! Temperatures will be mild, around 70° with sunny skies and low chances for showers.

Damp and chilly Friday, sunny and cold weekend.
