JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunshine will kick off Wednesday morning with hazy skies and warm steamy conditions. Morning temperatures will quickly jump into the low to mid 90s. Temperatures will not be quite as high as they were on Tuesday (we had a high 95° and feel-like high of 104°, super steamy). With nearly the same weather pattern, including heat, Wednesday afternoon will become rather busy on Exact Track 4D.

Yep, possible severe storms Wednesday afternoon. More on this later...

Just a scattered thundershower or two each afternoon from Thursday through Friday. But the afternoons will not be dry days. Do expect a few storms.

The heat will still be on as afternoon highs will again reach into the low 90s. Feel-like highs will be near 100°. Afternoon chance of rain will be in the 15-25% chances (below the climatological average of 40%).

Then there is Claudette and this weekend. The are strong indications that once Bill fades on Wednesday, Claudette will quickly form in the Gulf of Mexico. Depending on its strength and track, we could again be in store for heavy localized rainfall this weekend.

Start making some backup plans if you have any outdoor plans for this weekend.

Drier then weekend rains
