Sunny, hot and dry

Record heat possible today

By Mark Collins - Meteorologist

JACKSONVILLE, Fla - Hot, Hot, Hot. No rain, no clouds, little humidity, little breeze. Look for more skyrocketing temps today with 8 hours at 90 or higher. Some of us on the Westside will see a second day at 100!
 
 As you break a sweat tailgating the temperatures soar to 97° in the stadium for the Jags game with blazing sun pushing the heat index to 103-107°.
 
Temps will top out around 90 at the beaches before the sea breeze pushes inland after 12 pm only to reach the river by 5:30 pm (Good boating).
 
More dry heat Monday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 90s.
 
Tuesday only isolated showers or storms may develop west of I-95 with increasing easterly flow and moisture.
 
Everything I said in the first sentence changes Thursday with the approach of a tropical wave Friday. It is set to boost easterly winds and showers.
