JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- We've been talking about the heat all week, and it HAS been VERY warm...especially away from the coast. Get this, though: temperatures will go UP.
The winds, which govern much of our weather in Northeast Florida, will have more of a southerly component. Most of the week, the winds have blown from the east (straight onshore).
With with winds coming in from the south/southeast, temperatures will climb a few degrees. That'll start today and continue through the weekend. The First Alert Weather Team has Jacksonville around 93 or 94 degrees for the official high each day through Sunday.
Of course, as the saying goes..."It's not just the heat, it's the humidity". The thick August humidity will raise the heat index to 100-105 degrees for the City. The heat index over the weekend inland may be as high as 110 degrees!
