• First Alert Weather: Turning Hotter with a Continued Wildfire Risk

    By: Corey Simma

    Updated:

    Warm and dry Saturday evening with mild conditions overnight as lows fall to the 60s and 70s. Light winds Sunday morning may allow for smoke to lower visibility again for Inland Duval/Nassau Counties because of the Yellow Bluff Fire, and Baker/Columbia Counties because of the prescribed burn Friday.

     

    Sunday is mostly sunny, dry and even hotter by a few degrees. High temps will be around 90 at the coast but mid to upper 90s inland. Some areas inland will likely reach 100 degrees. The humidity is increasing so heat indices will climb to around 100-105 before the seabreeze moves inland later in the day.  

     

    Memorial Day is even hotter with record heat likely.  Hot and dry conditions persist into next week with chances for rain looking POSSIBLE by late in the weekend into the following week.
