Cooler than average temperatures + a few showers... Tracking Hurricane "Cristobal"

Nice weather to continue

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —

As Hurricane Cristobal moves up the east coast we will enjoy a few days of very pleasant weather.

As "Cristobal" lifts north and east of the Jacksonville coast, we will continue to see breezy northeaserly winds.  This is leading to dangerous conditions at area beaches. The rip current risk will remain elevated today -- remember to never swim or surf alone and try to stay near a lifeguard.  These gusty winds are also causing some minor beach especially during high tide.

Isolated showers are expected today mainly along the coast. Temperatures will stay below average in the 80s today with lows Wednesday night dropping into the 60s inland.

Temperatures return to the 90s Thursday and will stay seasonal through early next week. A few afternoon storms will develop Thursday and storm coverage will increase as we progress into the holiday weekend.

TROPICS: "Cristobal" is west of Bermuda and will stay hundreds of miles east of the entire U.S. east coast.
