JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — TONIGHT: Another terrific evening as temperatures drop into the 60s. Lows will cool into the upper 50s by daybreak. A cold front moves through overnight with partly cloudy skies and mostly dry conditions. The best chance for a stray, weakening shower will be across southeast Georgia before 2:00 a.m. The wind will shift from the southwest to the northwest by morning.
TUESDAY: Things will be mostly sunny and pleasant start, but our nor'easter develops by late day. Our next chance of rain will be mainly along coastal St. Johns and Flagler counties by the evening. However, most of the rain holds off until late at night. Highs will be a touch cooler in the lower and middle 70s. The wind will begin to pick up and shift out of the northeast by the afternoon.
WEDNESDAY: The coastal nor'easter intensifies with a rainy start to our day. Expect a strong northeast wind sustained near 25 mph along the coast with occasional gusts of 40 mph. This will also mean rough surf and seas. Tides will be slightly higher than normal, but the last quarter moon should help us a bit this time around. Look for a drier finish to the day, but grab your jackets as highs only stick in the lower and middle 60s!
EXTENDED FORECAST: Tranquil weather moves back in with a warming trend. Highs on Thursday will warm to near 70 and by Friday highs are back in the middle 70s. The weekend looks very warm with temps in the 80s and our next cold front approaching on Sunday. Shower and storm chances will also increase by Sunday evening into Monday.
