Temps: Turning Much Warmer (Again)... Monday Front... Full Moon Over Jacksonville
Temps. are the First Alert weather story the next 5-6 days. Wed. will be cool but "December nice". Early morning temps. in the 30s will only recover to the low 60s in the afternoon. Similar temps. early Thu., but a warming trend will kick in through the day with afernoon highs in the lower 70s. Temps. only go up from there -- at least through Sunday. Highs Fri. will reach the mid 70s... upper 70s Saturday... & lower 80s Sun.(!).
Temps. will drop slightly -- but still very mild -- Mon. followed by a sharper drop Tue. But even then, temps. won't be much lower than avg. with highs still in the 60s.
The temp. change will be accompanied be some rain Mon. At this point, amounts don't look to be all that great.
Meanwhile...arctic air continues to pour into the Northern U.S. with several surges of cold between now & Christmas. However -- as has been the case much of this season so far -- the cold won't push far to the south, so the First Coast will only get a glancing blow, at worst.
Monday's front will be part of a strong storm that will move from Texas through the Tennessee & Ohio Valley's. Flooding rain will accompany the strom from Texas to Pennsylvania with snow & ice on the backside. The front will be weakening by the time it reaches Jacksonville, but the First Coast will still see a round of showers.
Nice full moonrise Tue. evening -- pic from Riverside -- "smmattocks".
