NEAR TERM
Issued at 323 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

For the latest NE FL and SE GA Daily Key Messages please visit: https:// www.weather.gov/media/jax/briefings/nws-jax-briefing.pdf

Unseasonably warm conditions continue under the influence of a dominating upper ridge. Temperatures continue to rise through the 80s and will challenge daily records across the region as peak temps read near 90F (daily records in the climate section below).

Otherwise fair weather reigns across NE FL and SE GA as abnormally warm temperatures drive a stubborn Atlantic sea breeze inland, which should reach the I-95 corridor before dissipating this evening. There is an outside chance of sprinkle north of Jacksonville along the SE GA coast this afternoon as better moisture, characterized by a cumulus Field, exists across GA.

Fair conditions continue into tonight as thin cirrus pushes through the ridge flow and a weakening front approaches from the northwest.
The primary focus tonight and early Saturday will an advective low stratus and fog event emanating from the Big Bend. Areas could become locally dense by sunrise Saturday, particularly across the Suwannee River valley and I-75 corridor, and it may require Dense Fog headlines.

SHORT TERM
(Saturday through Monday night)
Issued at 323 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

Early morning fog will begin to clear during the early daylight hours on Saturday. By the afternoon, an increase in moisture over southeast Georgia from the approaching frontal boundary will bring scattered showers and chances for isolated thunderstorms. A Marginal risk of severe storms over northern southeast Georgia due to strong daytime heating and an increase in moisture, resulting in an unstable air mass, in which some isolated damaging wind gusts may occur as storms develop. Come Sunday, the cold front will begin to move through the area, with widespread showers and isolated storms expected. Instability is not expected to be as strong as Saturday, which will limit the the potential for any severe storms. As the cold front lingers over north central Florida, showers and isolated storms will remain for most of the day on Monday, clearing out by the overnight hours into Tuesday.

Above normal temperatures during the weekend, as SE GA and NE FL will see highs the upper 80s to lower 90s Saturday. Sunday will be a few degrees cooler, with highs in the mid to upper 80s across NE FL, and upper 70s to mid 80s across SE GA depending on the front's position.

(Tuesday through next Friday)
Issued at 323 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024
