First Alert Weather

Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia has a brief cool-down as we ‘leap’ toward the weekend

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News Jax’s First Alert Weather Team is tracking cooler temperatures coming in as we near the weekend.

Wednesday morning started in the 50s and 60s behind an expected cold front that the First Alert Weather Team has been tracking all week.

Winds are expected to pick up out of the northeast at 15-20 mph with higher gusts, especially at the coast.


Afternoon temperatures today will only be in the lower to mid-60s, which is 20+ degrees cooler than yesterday afternoon.

A few coastal showers are possible Thursday in St. Johns County with onshore winds. More showers will move into the overarching area by Friday and into the weekend, and an evening storm is possible.

Action News Jax’s First Alert Weather Team will continue to monitor the forecast and give you updates throughout the day.
