JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Good morning the winds of change provide our weather pick of the week. A lone coastal shower is possible this morning but the big story is we all go mostly sunny and not nearly as hot with a nice fresh ocean breeze this afternoon. Highs in the upper 80s to near 90.
Friday we keep the nice weather coming! Our best chance of rain will be in the early morning mainly along the coast but sunshine wins out again and it looks great for Friday football with highs in the middle to upper 80s or closer to where we should be this time of year.
WEEKEND: A drier north-east breeze with mostly sunny skies will rule our forecast. There will be only isolated coastal showers mainly late at night and early morning. Highs will be much more comfortable on both Saturday and Sunday, in the mid to upper 80s opposed to the 90s. An isolated shower is possible again on Sunday. Winning weather for the Jaguars! Any rain downtown should be before game time and it will not amount to much.
A fresh ocean breeze stays in charge. Lows will range in the lower and middle 70s with some inland areas sneaking into the upper 60s. Yes!!!
TROPICS: The tropics are quiet compared to the past few weeks! However, do not let your guard down as we are still in the heat of hurricane season. There is a slight chance of development of a weak wave approaching the Windward Islands by early next week but the National Hurricane Center is only giving it a 10% chance of development. No concerns over the next week here at home.Things look to get busier once again by October 1st.
