Mindy has formed and... ‘yawn’

Mindy will be weak as it quickly moves ashore and weakens


Mindy quickly moved ashore overnight and will weaken to an area of low pressure. There will be a chance of heavy rains here in Jacksonville, but these will be mainly in the morning to early afternoon hours.

So, prepare for a very wet Thursday morning.

After 2-3 p.m. skies should clear out and dry out.

Highs will be in the 80s. Southwest winds will be gusty up to 20 mph.

By Friday, conditions get back to normal as afternoon and evening thundershowers return as highs reach into the upper 80s.

Again, the newly formed Mindy will have minimal impacts on Jacksonville.


Wednesday evening thundershowers have ended and from here, only a few scattered showers are expected.

Overnight won’t stay completely dry. The big threat of heavier rains will begin after 7 a.m. Some heavy rain and thunderstorms will track eastward through mid-morning before tapering off by afternoon.

This extra rainy pattern comes from a low in the Gulf that will push over our area Thursday.

It brings dry conditions to southern Georgia Friday but the rest of it will continue with showers into the weekend.

Temps relax into the 80s the next few days due to clouds and an easterly flow developing Friday.

Looking ahead: Rain chances wind down Friday with scattered showers possible through the weekend.
