Happy Sunday!

Our rain chances have dropped for NE FL but those across SE GA will continue to see showers track north this evening.

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

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

We struggled to reach the 60s today with most locations staying in the mid to upper 50s. Cloudy skies and strong northeasterly winds 15-20 mph will continue through the night with lows dropping into the low 50s.

Nor’easter conditions will follow us into Monday before we slowly improve with the a peek of sunshine returning Tuesday with highs back in the 70s - Yay!
