Weekend rain chances

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Showers pushed through Southeastern Georgia this afternoon ahead of a cold front.  The shortwave weakened during the evening hours, producing fewer showers as the front approached Northeastern Florida during the evening hours.  The clouds cleared overnight and the cooler, drier air filters into the forecast area.  Our temperatures will drop overnight into the low 40's for inland areas, mid to upper 40's for the beaches.  Expect much cooler, sunny Wednesday with much of the day spent in the 50's, briefly reaching 60° for an afternoon high.  Wednesday's winds are from the North between 7 and 10mph.

A few clouds move in Wednesday night, resulting in partly cloudy skies, while overnight lows dip down to 42°.  Light winds from the North become calm overnight.

Thursday starts in the low 40's and warms to 70° with building clouds.  Overnight Thursday is mostly cloudy, which insulates us, and overnight temperatures fall only to 57°.  

Friday starts out cloudy and in the upper 50's, and builds towards a 30% coverage of showers and a few thunderstorms.  Afternoon highs reach 74° before the showers move in.

Friday evening carries 30% chances for showers overnight, while temperatures fall to 63° overnight.

Saturday, expect partly sunny skies and afternoon highs reaching 80° with 30% coverage of afternoon showers and a few thunderstorms.  Saturday evening- a few showers persist, resulting in a 30% chance for rain overnight as lows dip to 63°. 

Sunday, expect a few showers and thunderstorms, resulting in 30% coverage of rain, and afternoon highs climbing to 79° despite the mostly cloudy skies.
