After a blustery day on Monday, we’ll still find some breezy conditions setting in today in the wake of the recent cold front. Cool and dry air will be wrapped in behind the parent trough that is creating the blizzard conditions in the northeast. Although our temperatures won’t be nearly as chilly as up north, our highs today will run in the low to mid-60s, slightly below the average high for this time of year which is 72 degrees. Skies will be mostly sunny but the breeze will make it feel a bit cooler.
Hazardous beach and boating conditions will persist due to the windy conditions. A Small Craft Advisory continues for the near shore waters and a Gale Warning for the offshore waters through Tuesday. It will be windy and cold at the beach and the surf will be very dangerous with strong rip currents.
Tonight, skies will remain clear as winds start to subside. Widespread lows in the low 40s are expected with a handful of upper 30s across the usually cooler spots in Marion and Flagler counties.
The balance of the work week will not offer much in the way of changes. Plenty of sunshine will stick around along with gradually warming temperatures. Highs will rebound to near 70 by Thursday and Friday with mid- to upper 70s likely Saturday and Sunday Rain will stay out of the forecast until late in the weekend.
