January calm before a powerful winter storm

Another 7 for Thursday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – If you are a News4jax Insider to the Weather Authority Newsletter, you already know about the impending wild Sunday weather we are expecting. You will also be aware of an east coast winter storm that will impact tens of millions this weekend and early next week as a powerful winter storm that will dump extreme snowfall, blowing and drifting snow, sleet, freezing rain, high winds, coastal issues including heavy coastal rains to Boston. For us? Possible severe storms, including tornadoes. Yep, going to be a busy Sunday in the weather office.

Until then, let the comfortably cool, dry January weather roll.

There will (hopefully) be another rocket launch today, another Falcon 9, launch time starts at 10:25 a.m.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be similar, as morning’s will start off chilly, in the low to middle 40s. Partly to mostly sunny skies will allow some modest milder afternoons as highs will be around 70°. The chances of rain will be light, only Saturday afternoon having a chance greater than 25%. Those should be brief showers.

Sunrise will be around 7:24 a.m. and sunset at 5:44 p.m.

Conditions for launch and local viewing are fair to good.
It's basically all about Sunday.
