The cold has arrived, & it's not going away anytime soon.

2 more strong cold fronts on the horizon:

(1) Thu. night. Winds will shift to the northwest & increase to 15-20 mph overnight leading to a very cold Fri. Early morning temps. in the mid 20s to low 30s -- with wind chills in the teens & low 20s -- will only rise into the low to mid 40s Friday. A widespread freeze -- from inland all the way to the coast -- will follow for early Sat.

(2) Tuesday. But first...some moisture will stream across the First Coast Sun. night-Mon. leading to some rain. Then the cold front follows Tue. leading to another cold snap for the middle of next week.

Smoke from a contolled burn in Baker Co. -- 45 miles W/NW of Jax -- spread over Jacksonville, especially the west & southside late Wed. The photo below is from Victor Jackson in St. Johns Co....the 2nd image is from the First Alert Skycam at The Landing. Both show the smoke-filled skies. Winds will become more northerly Thu. which will keep the smoke mainly west of Jax. However, a temp. inversion early in the day could trap some of the smoke until temps. moderate later in the morning.

While cold now, last year's global avg. was 1.1 F degrees F above the 20th Century avg & appears to be the 7th warmest on record. For an interesting time lapse from NASA of temp. trends over the last 6 decades, click ** here **.
