Jacksonville's wild weather ride enters day 2 with rain being the next weather ingredient we will add to the mix. This, in addition, to the clouds, chilly, breezy nor'easter conditions.
Yep, your basic "ugh" weather.
There is a Gale Warning and Heavy Surf Advisory for our Coastal communities. Winds over the immediate Coastal water may exceed 40 mph in gusts. Beach residents may see wind gusts to 33 mph. Surf will build and reach 4-6 feet. High Rip Current Risk and high tides will run about 1 foot above normal until the winds shift on Friday.
Meanwhile, inland locations will also deal with clouds, winds, chilly conditions with showers in Georgia. Coastal showers will develop during the afternoon. Amounts will be mainly light, yet mixing with the windy, chilly conditions? More "ugh" weather.
Friday, a low pressure rolls out of the Gulf of Mexico and along with it there will be two large areas of rain (some heavy) that may impact Jacksonville. The sunrise chances of rains will be along I-95 along the coast. There will be some heavy downpours that may impact your morning commute. Other early morning rains will be in Southern Georgia.
The second large area of rain will be from the lunch hour until about 6 p.m. These rains maybe associated with a few thunderstorms. These will be scattered storms, but a few may become severe with strong gusty winds. Strangely, skies may briefly clear out, especially south of Jacksonville. This will allow temperatures in these areas south of town to warm to near 70°.
For the folks in Georgia, clouds will be thicker (with showers) and temperatures will again remain chilly, only in the 50s (for the 3rd day in a row).
Saturday, the low pressure moves up the East Coast and skies clear out allowing warmer and drier southwesterly and westerly winds. Our temperatures will "pop" well into the 70s. Nice!
Sunday we settle down, skies remain mostly sunny, but temperatures back off, with afternoon highs only in the 60s.
Whew! Quite the ride the next few days!
