JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Record cold with a low of 30 degrees. Wind chills mainly in the 20s, even at area beaches. As the sun came up at 7:38 a.m. it was the coldest in Jacksonville’s history for March 13. The old record was in 1998.

Yet, super sunny skies will help, winds relaxing will also help.

Heading to The Players, either today or Monday, don’t forget the sunscreen. There will be abundant sunshine on both days.

Today’s highs will be in the mid-50s. Afternoon winds will “only” be 20-25 mph.

Coastal clouds may develop over southern St. Johns and Flagler counties.
