It will be sunny so remember to put on the sunscreen as the UV index will be very high. Temperatures will warm into the low 70s near the beaches and around 75 elsewhere.

Wednesday looks great with lows in the upper 50s and highs near 78 degrees. We will see mostly sunny skies through the day and no mention of any rain as very dry air remains.

By Thursday, the high pressure ridge will have slipped off the coast of northeast Florida which will swing our winds around to the east-southeast which will warm things up into the low 80s for most everyone and mid-to-upper 70s near the beaches. Look for a slight increase in humidity on Thursday.

Friday through Sunday, we can expect beautiful weather to continue with highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 60s each day under mostly sunny skies and no mention of any rain.

For boaters expect winds out of the east-northeast at 10 knots and seas 2 feet or less with a light chop on the waters.
