JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Temperatures and moisture will continue to rise this weekend, helping set up some much needed precipitation by Monday.

The warm, light west winds continue today, allowing our afternoon temperatures to reach the lower 80s in most locations. A few high clouds will pass overhead as some showers and thunderstorms swing by well to our north.

Clouds on the increase Sunday as more moisture streams in from the west. The breeze still a warm one, so highs remain in the low 80s. A few spotty showers may spark up in the late afternoon but the better chance of precipitation arrives Monday & Tuesday.

Two waves of energy will cruise by the First Coast, the first on Monday, putting us in the warm sector of the system. Showers will be on the increase throughout the day Monday with a few thunderstorms possible.

The second push of energy comes in the form of a cold front Tuesday. Thunderstorms are likely, with the chance for some being severe. Most of the precipitation likely eases by the end of the day Tuesday.

Much cooler air blows in Wednesday with gusty winds and temperatures into the 60s.
