Local Weather: Feeling like fall with northeast breezes and clouds this weekend

There is a Coastal Flood Warning for Duval, Nassau, and Camden counties with the potential for some flooding during times of high tide through Friday evening.


Weather Headlines:

  • A Coastal Flood Warning is in effect with flooding possible during times of high tide
  • Showers moving south with the cold front this weekend
  • Drier conditions overall and northeast breezes will stick with us next week, too

FRIDAY: Another mostly cloudy day, but we're beginning to see a few more peaks of blue sky in between the grey. The front will finally be on the move south, which will take most of the rain along with it. Only expect spots of drizzle near St. Augustine to Palm Coast. Look to the east for the full Harvest Moon rising in our sky at 7:35 p.m.

SATURDAY: Northeasterly winds still dominate the forecast, but the coastal flood threat will continue to reduce through the weekend as we pass the full moon phase. The onshore wind supported by some low-level moisture still will bring partly cloudy skies with isolated pockets of rainfall but for most of us, it will stay dry on Saturday with the high temperature pushing into the low 80s. 

SUNDAY: Even though the front will have drifted south of Jacksonville and the main rain event will be over for a good portion of the First Coast, we will continue to see nor'easter-like conditions off of the ocean. This cooler air over the relatively warmer waters of the Atlantic will form low-lying stratus clouds with isolated pockets of light, coastal rainfall Sunday mainly south of Jacksonville. But otherwise, most of the area will remain dry. 

MONDAY- TUESDAY: Looking ahead into next week cool northeast winds will still dominate bringing in some fresh air with highs into the 80s and lows dipping in the 60s with passing cloud cover. 

WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY: A similar weather pattern continues to dominate with a coastal trough setting up offshore, this will increase clouds late week with a slight increase in coastal precipitation with the additional instability.
