TONIGHT: Showers begin to fade by 7:00 p.m. and, by sunset, expect only patches of light rain leftover. We'll dry out overnight with clouds hanging on and lows dipping into the lower 70s.
SUNDAY: Showers will get an early start along the Gulf coast of Florida with downpours developing along the I-75 corridor by lunch time. After 1:00 p.m., rumbles of thunder will roll across Highway 301 and into the Jacksonville area. Expect some sun to shine through, but clouds will rule the skies. Highs will warm into the upper 80s inland; middle 80s at the beach. Sunday night should be drier for most of us with lows once again reaching the lower 70s.
NEXT WEEK: The front slowly lifts into Monday meaning we'll start off with a soggy flow from the Gulf early on and dry out later on in the day. Conditions become more seasonable by Tuesday with thunderstorm chances driven by our afternoon heat and sea breeze collisions. Expect more sun with highs near 90 degrees all week long.
TROPICS: The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of low pressure with a low chance of development. The low, situated along the stalled front bringing us the rain this weekend, will continue to ride northeast up the coast of the Carolinas. Otherwise, there are no concerns locally for the next 5 days. However, we will be keeping a close eye on the Gulf of Mexico, especially near Texas, within the next week. Make sure to keep checking back and remember to always be prepared during hurricane season.
