JACKSONVILLE, Fla — THIS WEEK: High pressure holds and will help to keep our skies sunny and mostly dry. The exception to the rule would be only an isolated, coastal shower moving onshore with the northeast breeze picking up into the afternoon. Temperatures will only gradually warm through the week with highs boosting from the lower and middle 80s to the upper 80s. Jacksonville’s average high is 82F. Overnight lows will remain in the middle to upper 60s.
WEEKEND: Clouds will slowly start to increase throughout the day on Saturday and a few showers will be possible across southeast Georgia. A fall cold front will pass through early Sunday bringing with a few showers possible across northeast Flordia. This front will help to drop our afternoon highs, but the northeast breezes should prevent a big drop in overnight lows.
TROPICS: There are no threats to the First Coast
October tropical systems tend to develop across the Caribbean Sea or the Gulf of Mexico where the sea surface temperatures are still very warm. There is historically a second peak in the middle of October, so make sure you stay vigilant and prepared. You don’t want to let your guard down just yet. The Atlantic hurricane season ends on November 30.
RIP CURRENTS: It’s always a good idea to talk to the lifeguards and only go out where they can see you. The risk of rip currents always exists, especially around jetties and piers. Have fun, yet play it safe.
