LOCAL: Cold temps overnight with a big warm-up tomorrow

A cold start to the work week but sunshine will prevail allowing temps to return to the 70's by mid-week.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — MONDAY NIGHT: Sunset tonight will be at 5:25 PM. Clear skies overnight will help temperatures drop into the low to mid 30s inland and upper 30s to low 40s for coastal regions. A frost advisory is in effect for portions of the First Coast from 3-8 AM. Tonight would be a good night to wrap up cold-sensitive plants or bring them inside. 

TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY. The cooler and mostly dry pattern will continue on into the week ahead!  Tuesday morning through those clear and dry skies will allow the mercury to drop with a likely frost for inland areas west of 95 on Tuesday morning. The good news the temperature will rebound quickly after sunrise but be sure to prepare for yet another early season frost. 

THURSDAY-SATURDAY: Temperatures will continue to rise as we move towards the end of the week. Highs by Friday will be in the mid-70s and that will carry over into the weekend as well.  A series of short wave upper-level troughs will increase cloud cover from time to time with a slight chance of rain over the weekend.
