As expected....a nice change this week from the many weeks of high heat & humidity & afternoon t'storms.

More of the same the next several days. Persistent onshore east winds will continue but only moderately strong at the beaches (with a moderate rip current risk)....weak inland. There will be enough moisture for some showers at times closer to the coast, & a few showers might manage to make it to I-95 or even a little west of I-95. But the overall pattern will remain genearally dry. The chances for showers & scattered storms will go up some by Fri. & especially the weekend.

As for temps.....persistence will be the way to go. Highs in the mid to upper 80s at the beaches...lower 90s inland. Lows will dip into the 60s inland but remain 75+ at the beaches.

These milder temps. come after a summer (meteorological summer) that was cooler than avg. Click ** here ** for a summary from our Jax N.W.S. The two maps below are courtesy the Jax N.W.S. -- the first one shows the total rainfall for June-Aug., the 2nd map shows the departure from avg. In what certainly seemed like a very wet summer, it's interesting to note that a number of places in the eastern two-tear counties (I-95 to the beaches) along the Atlantic Coast had a bit below avg. rainfall for the 3 months (-0.78" at JIA).

Beautiful skies Sun. evening as the crescent moon was very near Venus just after sunset. Photos below are from Rob Rivers & Shannon Bradley.
