JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We have a Weather Authority Alert issued today from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Tornado Watch expected for folks in Georgia later this afternoon.
This afternoon will be challenging as we are expecting a two to four hour round of showers in Jacksonville, with the most likely time of the showers between 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
In Georgia, especially in Central Georgia to South Carolina, there could be a few supercell thunderstorms. These are large storms capable of producing high winds, large hail and a few tornadoes.
This is unlikely in the Jacksonville area, but in southern Georgia it is a bigger possibility. Highs on Thursday will once again reach well into the 80s.
Friday looks very pleasant with highs in the 70s. There will be a rather quick early evening chill down as winds become northeasterly.
And this is where the weekend forecast begins to go downhill.
Winds build, surf builds (blown out), clouds build, temperatures drop (become chilly) and there will be some showers, especially along the coast.
More on that mess later.
