Cloudy to partly sunny, showers, storms develop late

Week ends with near record highs

Rain position forecast this evening at 9 p.m.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Most of us have been hot and dry today but some rain is expected this evening near Highway 301. Storms and showers could last until 11 p.m. over inland locations toward I-75.

Little rain will break the heat as highs in the upper 80s inland could reach into the 90s over the next several days. Temps will be in the lower 80s along the coastline.

Wednesday brings more heat and less rain coverage. Only an isolated shower or storm is possible along the sea breeze. This would likely be in the late afternoon, and once again, out toward Gainesville and west of Starke.

Limited rain chances continue through Friday with above normal highs from the mid-80s along the coast to 90 inland.

After a cold front passes Saturday, heat relief arrives Sunday with a return to the low to mid 80s.
