JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — TONIGHT: After a very steamy afternoon, it'll take temperatures quite a while to cool off overnight. Lows will eventually settle back in the lower and middle 70s by dawn. Skies will be mostly clear with a light southeast breeze.
MEMORIAL DAY: Sunrise will be at 6:26 a.m. and temperatures will be fast to warm up. We'll see 13 hours, 54 minutes of daylight, so with the intense heat expected be sure to check in on the elderly, young, and pets. High temperatures could tie or exceed record levels, near 100 degrees in Jacksonville. Rain chances remain near-zero and the sea breeze will only bring relief to areas east of I-95. Temperatures along the coast will top out in the lower 90s. Be mindful when it comes to grilling, bonfires, campfires, lawnmowers, etc. Our fire danger remains high!
NEXT WEEK: The heat continues and even builds more into next week! Temperatures will likely start to feel more like 105-108 degrees by mid-week. There is no chance of any significant rain in the near future, unfortunately, so drought conditions will likely expand. If anything, there may be a few showers or thunderstorms around by next weekend.
HURRICANE SEASON: While we deal with the heat, we are also monitoring the tropics. There are no concerns now, but just a reminder hurricane season officially starts June 1st. Now is the time to make sure you and your family continue to prepare and have a plan.
