Good morning! Great to check in with you here during Good Morning Jacksonville. We have had a few clouds this morning but do not let them scare you. The area of low pressure offshore today will continue to weaken and we will even see some sunshine! Timing is everything when forecasting and it looks like it is on our side. The strong cold front moving our way will hold off until later Monday into early Tuesday. This means our warming trend will continue with weather almost as good as my Grandma's pumpkin pie. Highs should reach well into the 70s today to the lower 80s Sunday and Monday. But something has to give in this unusually warm, late summer pattern and when winter makes a charge at us on Monday we could see some strong storms with damaging wind and even large hail. We will keep you updated. So do not let the turkey leftovers allow you to fall asleep in this very active pattern or you will be left out in the cold! Here are the latest models that I now agree with that came in this morning!
Main squall line stays well west and travel stays tranquil. Atlanta will probably not see any significant rain until later Sunday night and the major cities along the East Coast should be trouble-free! The Jag game looks very warm and dry with highs pushing 80 degrees. Remember the hats, shorts, and sunscreen.
The main squall line of storms moves our way by late Monday afternoon and we will have your only Live Doppler Radar cranking and our weather team ready to keep you and your family safe.
You can see why there are severe weather concerns. Snow will break out behind the front as close to home as Macon, Georgia. We do not have snow in the forecast but a big chill with a freeze and frost looking more likely by Wednesday and Thursday of next week. Daytime highs will be stuck in the 50s. Enjoy the rest of the weekend while you can and more of those leftovers. Now I am ready for some more pumpkin pie! Have a wonderful day! Make sure to e-mail me some pictures from the boat light parade and I will see you on Facebook, Twitter, and the news tonight at 6 p.m.
