JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Much cooler air rolled across the area this afternoon and will lead to a chilly evening with temperatures in the 40s and 50s under cloudy skies with areas of fog and some mist at times.
Meanwhile...a large winter storm is developing across the deep south and will affect the Southeast U.S. during the next couple days. Locally, some occasional light rain will occur across Jacksonville and Northeast Florida through Wednesday while heavier, more widespread rain will fall across Southeast Georgia. Rain -- and a few thunderstorms -- will become more widespread across the entire area later Wednesday into Wednesday night. Coverage is forecast to be 100% with amounts averaging a quarter to a half inch, locally up to 1", especially across Southeast Georgia. There will be a wide range of temperatures Wednesday afternoon -- 50s over Southeast Georgia to the 60s near I-10 to the 70s south and southwest of Jacksonville.
If traveling north, keep in mind that a major ice and snow storm will impact parts of the I-75 and I-95 corridor in Georgia, the Carolina's and points north.
