JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Happy Sunday!

We’re in for another beautiful day with mostly sunny skies and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be lighter out of the east 5-10 mph inland and 8-12 mph along the coast.

Along our beaches we continue to see a high rip current risk. While the red flags are flying on the beach please stay alert and set up near a lifeguard and stay out of the water.

Take advantage of this weekend because starting Monday we crank up the heat!

Temperatures in the mid 90s return Monday and stick with us...all...week...long. Yes that’s correct, we’re looking at sunny skies and highs in the mid 90s through the whole workweek. Although we won’t be as humid as we usually are in the summer months it will still be toasty out there so wear that sunscreen, hydrate, and water your yards/plants when you can.

We also have our first named storm on the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. You can read more about Tropical Storm Ana here.
