JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The lopsided nature of Cristobal in the Gulf of Mexico gives the First Coast, end entire state of Florida, a very unsettled & soggy weekend. A lingering shower or two overnight, otherwise it's damp, cloudier and tropical - lows in the 70s at dawn.
WEEKEND: As Cristobal moves north toward the Louisiana coast this weekend, clouds and showers continue to get sent our way. Look for a cloudier & warm Saturday - a few breaks of sun will get us to near 90 - as tropical showers will be around, likely in the afternoon.
Sunday looks to be the wetter of the days this weekend. More cloud coverage with pockets of rain and a few thunderstorms for the first portions of the day. Heavier rainfall amounts will likely be south and west of Duval, out towards I-75, with rainfall amounts upwards of 2 inches in some locations. Highs hang in the 80s again - with drier conditions by the end of Sunday.
EXTENDED: Doesn't look all that promising for drier weather so suddenly, the First Coast will remain stuck in a warm and moist air mass for at least the first half of the week, so rain and storm chances remain alive through Tuesday/Wednesday. Some more sun and a nice ocean breeze may take hold by the end of the week.
