    Another frosty morning with temps stuck in the 30's and low 40’s.   But Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says we'll be a good 8 degrees warmer than yesterday with lots of sun and calm winds. “And then a breezy and rather mild day tomorrow. We’ll approach 70 degrees but that wind is going to make it feel cooler than it actually is, and that wind will be ahead of the next cold front”.  Expect that front to roll across the area Tuesday night, it will be dry, but will usher in another shot at chilly temperatures on Wednesday and early Thursday.  Mike is tracking a possible storm system to end the week and for your upcoming weekend.  LISTEN:  Mike Buresh Podcast
  •  21-year-old Korey Richardson is in police custody after a four-hour long standoff at Southside apartment complex.  Witnesses told police they heard what sounded like a man beating a woman inside of the units. They also said they saw the woman run away from the apartment, but the man chased after her, grabbed her and dragged her back into the apartment.  A small child was also with the man and woman.  Responding officers tried to contact the two inside but they were unable to. A SWAT callout was initiated after there was a concern it was a hostage situation, and Richardson was not letting the woman leave.  The woman was eventually released along with the child. Police reported she had minor injuries but the child was okay.  Shortly after the woman and child were released, Richardson surrendered and was taken into custody.  He’s facing a Battery and False Imprisonment charge.
  • After his second interception, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye ran to the sideline and started high-fiving fans.Just when it seemed like he was done, he turned around, grabbed a cheerleader's pompoms and started dancing.Bouye and the Jaguars had plenty to celebrate.Blake Bortles threw two perfect passes for touchdowns, Jaydon Mickens set up another score with a 72-yard punt return , and Jacksonville beat the Seattle Seahawks 30-24 on Sunday to claim sole possession of first place in the AFC South and secure the franchise's first winning season since 2007.The Jaguars (9-4) intercepted three of Russell Wilson's passes, including two on deep balls , and won for the sixth time in their last seven games. The latest victory coupled with Tennessee's loss at Arizona moved Jacksonville atop the division. It's the first time since 2010 the Jaguars have had the outright lead this late in a season.'We really should have (blown) them out if we're being real about it,' cornerback Jalen Ramsey said.The Seahawks (8-5) scored twice on long passes in the fourth quarter, with Wilson finding Paul Richardson for 61 yards and Tyler Lockett for 74 yards. The second one cut the lead to 30-24, and Seattle got one last chance to tie or take the lead. But Wilson misfired on a fourth-and-9 play near midfield.'We had it exactly where we wanted to at the end of the game,' Wilson said. 'I don't know if it can get any better than that. That's got to be one of the most exciting games you can watch. Shoot man, we should have won. We felt like we should have won.'Leonard Fournette iced the game with a 13-yard run on a third-and-11 play, which gave him 101 yards on the ground. Jacksonville tried to run out the clock from there, but the Seahawks wouldn't go quietly.Seattle defensive tackle Michael Bennett dived at center Brandon Linder's knees, setting off a near-melee. Sheldon Richardson was ejected for throwing a punch , and Fournette went after Bennett.More pushing and shoving ensued after Bortles' next kneel-down, and defensive end Quinton Jefferson was tossed. Jefferson tried to climb into the stands after getting hit with what looked like a plastic bottle. Seattle coach Pete Carroll also got flagged for coming onto the field. Carroll walked into Seattle's huddle, possibly to calm his players down.'Nobody likes to lose, but at the end of the day, this is our profession,' Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. 'We have to start acting right and be professionals. That's twice now that teams have gone against us and wanted to act out. We're just socking them in the mouth and getting them a little upset. We're going to keep doing it. That doesn't bother us.'Added Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis: 'There's no room in the game for that. You see we're kneeling. You can get somebody hurt. We're out there trying to kneel. There are no timeouts. You guys can't stop the clock, so why try to hurt somebody?'We had 60 minutes to handle that. The last 30 seconds, while we're kneeling, you're going to spear somebody in the legs? That's not cool.'During the week, the Jaguars refused to call it a 'statement game' even though it was a meaningful home contest in December against a perennial playoff contender and recent Super Bowl champion.They relented afterward, acknowledging the significance of the victory before a sellout crowd of 64,431, first full building since 2016 season opener against Green Bay.'This is not the old Jaguars team,' Fournette said. 'We are not pushovers and are going to fight back.'QB STATSBortles played one of his best games in four seasons. He completed 18 of 27 passes for 268 yards, with TD passes to rookies Dede Westbrook and Keelen Cole. He wasn't sacked and didn't have a turnover.Wilson was 17 of 31 for 271 yards, with three touchdowns and three interceptions. He was sacked twice, but knocked down way more often. It was the fourth time in 105 career games that Wilson threw three interceptions.INJURIESSeahawks: Seattle lost LB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) and LB K.J. Wright (concussion). ...

  • The St. Johns River Water Management District is asking for your help saving 1 billion gallons of water, during the cooler months of December, January, and February.  The district is launching a 'Skip a Week' campaign, asking homeowners to not water or irrigate their lawn every week and instead water it every other week of the winter.  'Skipping a week of irrigation when your yard doesn't need it keeps lawns healthy and helps to conserve drinking water supplies-- if homeowners who irrigate skipped every other week of watering this winter, north and east-central Florida could save more than 1 billion gallons of water,' says St. Johns Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle.  The district says using less water encourages deeper grass and plant roots, which helps make them more drought-tolerant and less susceptible to pests.  To read more about the 'Skip a Week', including how to know when your lawn does need water, by clicking HERE.

  • A Texas neighborhood is shaken by the deaths of two young children, which authorities believe came at the hand of their father. According to the Star-Telegram, police responded to a North Richland Hills home over the weekend after a mother called 911. The mother was uninjured, but two children and an adult man, later found to be their father, were found dead at the residence. >> Read more trending news “Upon arrival, officers found a 5-year-old female, 9-year-old male and adult male all deceased from apparent gunshot wounds. Initial investigation revealed the father shot the children and then shot himself,” North Richland Hills police said in a statement. The department went on to explain a search into the home’s records “revealed no prior history between [the] department and the family or address.” The names of those involved have not yet been released. “There’s no history here,” said police spokesperson Carissa Katekaru. “We’re still trying to figure out why. I grew up in North Richland Hills, and I would call this a pretty quiet neighborhood.” Neighbor Denise Albino, 57, has lived in the area for about 20 years. “Oh my God, those poor babies,” she said. “I just can’t understand why people do this kind of thing.” Albino said her son told her about the news. “I didn’t know them,” she added. “I would see the kids playing basketball all the time, but I never really got a chance to speak with them.” Another neighbor, Rosa Nichols, told KTVT: “You can drive by, and they can have a perfect house, but you don’t know what’s going on inside the house. It’s so sad.” “We lived there for several years and had some happy memories and sure hate to have sad memories made there for these families. For this family, we don’t know you, but we sure feel for you,” said Mike Bentley, who once lived in the home.
