Tracking storm threat followed by chilly air

Jacksonville, Fl — Severe storms in the Deep South will weaken as they move east through Florida and eventually through our area ahead of a cold front.

Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says the day starts breezy and cloud with warm, humid air ahead of the storms. Temps fall from 80 to the 60s by late afternoon.

The highest storm threat is north and west of Jacksonville into inland SE Georgia during the late morning and early afternoon. The line of showers will generally weaken as it moves southeast in NE Florida between 1 pm and 3 pm.

The bulk of the showers should be south of Jacksonville in time for the evening commute. However, there may be a few isolated showers passing through as the actual front moves over our area. Other than a lingering shower tonight will be clear and turn cooler.

Thursday is when the chill returns - Florida style - with breezy temperatures only climbing to the mid-60s. The cool temps don’t stick around long. By Friday we’ll start another warming trend.

Average high temperatures are 70 degrees. We’ll be in the low 70s on Friday and upper 70s to near 80. We’ll be sunny and dry throughout the weekend.

Buresh says the overall pattern remains mild into early December.
