Terrific Tuesday! Richard says sunny skies continue

Warm week ahead


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – With high pressure to our southwest, dry conditions continue.  Light west to southwest winds expected through noon then turning east and pushing into the coastal areas this afternoon.  Limited cloud cover tonight will allow for radiational cooling and patchy fog inland.

High pressure will slip away Wednesday night into Thursday.  Moisture will increase as the southwest flow strengthens.  A cold front will move toward our area late Thursday.  Isolated to scattered showers and storms possible Thursday over western counties and closer to I-75.  Temperatures will trend above normal this week.  A sea breeze will develop and then push inland this afternoon.  This will bring cooler temperatures along the area beaches.

Tuesday:  Sunny skies with afternoon highs in the 80s inland, 70s along our beaches.  Wind W/SE 5-10 mph.  Clear and cool overnight.

Wednesday:  Wake up temperatures in the 40s and 50s under clear skies.  Sunny afternoon with highs in the 80s inland, 70s along our beaches.  Wind SE 5-10 mph.  Clear, cool overnight.
