JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nor’easter conditions are out in full force Sunday. We’ll see multiple bands of rain, and a few areas may see heavy downpours. Totals amounts will be under an inch as much of the rains will be misty.

Strong winds will continue along our beaches with a north wind 17 to 20 mph and gusts 30+ mph. This could cause some higher than normal tides, rough/dangerous surf and limited beach erosion. There is a high rip current risk this weekend.

We do have a Gale Warning offshore and a Small Craft Advisory/High Surf Advisory along our beaches due to rough seas and rough surf. Our beaches could see large breaking waves of 7 to 8 feet.

Monday we will see a slight improvement, highs, with sunshine, may reach 70°.

Tuesday thereafter conditions really get nice with highs in the 80s.
