Jacksonville, FL - It’s a welcome change, just two days after tying a record high of 96 degrees, cooler air has arrived. Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says we'll be below average today and through the weekend.
“We’re even getting rid of a little bit of that humidity so it allows the temperatures at night, at least inland, to drop in the 60’s. It stays in the 70’s at the beaches because of that wind off water”, said Buresh.
Expect a few showers, not particularly widespread or persistent, closer to the coast today and tonight. Kickoff forecast for the Jaguars and Titans will be in the 70’s and falling through the night.
The weekend is looking really nice with sunshine and mild afternoons in the low to mid 80’s and comfortably cool nights in the 60’s, the coolest stretch of temperatures at night since May.
Gusty winds out the NE, drier air, finally feels refreshing. @MikeFirstAlert Podcast tracks coolest temps (at night) four months: https://t.co/8k5rPxLyRf#firstalertwx @ActionNewsJax @WOKVNews @wxgarrett @CSimmaWX @RossFirstAlert @StaceyGarvilla— Rich Jones (@RichJonesJax) September 19, 2019
