First Coast Weather
I'm meteorologist Mike Prangley. We will squeeze in one more fine day before the arctic cold front arrives. We will start off in the lower to middle 40s with plenty of sunshine then turn windy with a brief isolated shower between 2 and 5 p.m. Highs will be in the middle to upper 60s. A west wind will be near 20 mph and gusty.
