JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - We are waking up to better news for our area concerning Dorian, but it is too soon to tell what local impacts we may see, and we still expect changes in the extended track for the storm. As of the latest advisory, the storm is expected to track just offshore of the east coast of Florida and our area, making landfall in the Carolinas.
The margin of error on forecasts that far in the future is significant, so those factors of this forecast could change dramatically- we will keep you updated.
Today we are waking up in the mid 70s with downpours pushing onshore. Winds will pick up out of the east between 12-17 mph. Expect passing downpours, especially to the north of I-10 mph. Skies will be partly sunny to mostly cloudy with temperatures climbing into the upper 80s.
This evening the showers will fade, temperatures will sink into the mid 70s overnight.
Sunday's forecast is a tad drier, with more isolated downpours pushing onshore. Expect windy conditions, building out of the east around 20 mph, with gusts even higher. Temperatures will top out in the upper 80s.
Chances for showers increase on Labor day Monday, expect 60% chances to see downpours pushing onshore. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s with gusty onshore winds.
Tuesday and Wednesday look cloudy, windy and rainy right now- but that forecast is solely dependent on Hurricane Dorian's track and may change dramatically based on shifts in the track.
