Record high in Jacksonville when the heat hits the beaches this weekend

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – One down and three out. Three more well beyond normal afternoons heading for Jacksonville.

Today, Friday, a new record high is likely to be set as we expect the afternoon high to hit 90 °. The current record high for Friday is 88 ° in 1965.

This morning a few clouds of fog start the day. Sunrise temperatures start at 60-65 °. The midday temperatures are around 80 °. Hazy sunny skies all day. Then up to 90 ° by the afternoon.

On the beaches, the highs reach almost 80 ° in the afternoon, as the winds off the coast (southwest) blow up to 24 km / h. After 3 p.m. a sea breeze (southeast winds) develops, which cools the air temperatures (quickly). The evening temperatures on the beach are around 70 °.

Speaking of beaches, after the last few weekends, Nor’easter Blowout (we had winds up to 80 km / h) will be a sweet payback this weekend. Watch out for the sun, the UV index is in the very high range, which means you only have to burn for 20 minutes.


Saturday and Sunday are identical. There will be little chance of afternoon showers along I-95, but they should be easy.

The next best chance of rain will come on Monday and Tuesday.

UVI will be very highRecord high for Friday
