Chilly start to the work week doesn't last long.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Sunday evening cools quickly as the winds calm and the temperatures dip into the low 40s under clear skies. Winds will be out of the northwest around sunset between 7 and 12mph, and calming after midnight. Southeast Georgia will reach 39-43° overnight, inland northeast Florida 40-45°, and coastal northeast Florida will get down to 42-49° overnight.

Expect a chilly start Monday morning with rapidly warming temperatures putting the afternoon high in the upper 70s. Jacksonville should top out at 77° with light northwesterly winds becoming northeasterly between 5 and 10mph. No chances for rain Monday and clear, sunny skies are expected.

At the beaches, temperatures struggle to reach 70°. Out to 20 nautical miles, expect 7-12mph and 2-3' seas.  Expect a low risk for rip currents along the beaches and a UV index of 8, putting your burn time at 15 minutes.

The rain on Friday and Saturday brought notable rainfall to some. Below is a report from the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville of some area rainfall totals.
