Today was not as hot thanks to the clouds we saw during the morning, temperatures were in the upper 80s around lunch and climbed into the low to mid 90s for the afternoon hours. We expect showers and thunderstorms to fire up a bit later in the afternoon today, with rain chances along I-95 peaking during the 5pm hour. Due to our more westerly flow today, we could see rain at the beaches (finally!)
The storms will fade after sunset this evening. Expect gradually clearing skies and temperatures sinking down into the mid 70s.
Friday (Rolling Stones Day in Jacksonville!) starts out in the mid 70s and warms up into the low to mid 90s for the afternoon hours. We expect 40% chances for rain firing up after 3p.m. and lingering through about 7p.m. in some areas. By the time the Stones take the stage, the rain chances have dwindled, but pre-concert festivities may get rained on. Temperatures during the concert will be sinking down through the 80s.
Saturday now looks like the slightly drier day of the weekend, but we still expect 40% chances for you to see afternoon storms. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 90s under partly cloudy skies.
Sunday we expect to warm up into the mid 90s with 50% chances for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon hours.
A WET weather pattern kicks off Monday, with 60% chances for rain Monday and Tuesday, followed by 80% chances for rain on Wednesday and Thursday. The excellent chances for rain will hold our temperatures down to around 90° by the middle of the week.
