First Coast Forecast: Warm and bright at home; Tropical Depression 28 forms in Caribbean

We end off the weekend mostly dry and warm with plenty of sunshine. Rain chances will gradually increase in the week ahead!

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — SUNDAY: We're likely to start out with another round of inland fog across, especially across southeast Georgia, with some dense pockets as the sun is rising. Lows start out in the middle to upper 60s inland with mild lower 70s at the coast. High pressure settles in keeping most rainfall from forming throughout the day. Expect a warm afternoon with highs in the middle 80s and plenty of sunshine. 

THE WEEK AHEAD: We start off the work week with high pressure to our northeast and Tropical Depression 28 to our southwest near the Yucatan Peninsula. The onshore flow will help to keep things warm and humid, but Monday looks to be mostly dry. We'll see a gradual increase in shower chances through the week with a front poised to push across the region by the weekend. Highs will peak in the middle to upper 80s through Thursday, near 80 on Friday, and 70s by Saturday thanks to the front. So, it's looking like a cooler Halloween for us this year versus last year's record heat! Lows will dip back into the middle 50s and lower 60s for some by the weekend, too.

TROPICS: The long swell from Epsilon will continue, despite the storm being well over the north Atlantic. Dangerous rip currents linger for us here at home.

We are also watching Tropical Depression 28 over the northwest Caribbean. At this time, this area continues to strengthen and if it is named by the NHC it would become Zeta. This would make 2020 the most active tropical season on record since 2005. There is still time to watch this area as it develops, but it could influence our weather this upcoming week. 

As always, keep checking back for updates. The Atlantic hurricane season ends November 30.
