   What a perfect weekend for outdoor activities.


   Temperatures in the low 60's for highs, and mid 30's for lows. With abundant sunshine and breezy conditions.


   On Sunday morning at 3:39AM/EST the Space Shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to lift off from Cape Canaveral on the east coast of Florida. This will be the last night time launch. If all is go.

   Clear skies will be present, and it will make for a spectacular view from North Florida and the Jacksonville area.


   So set your alarm clocks early if you plan on capturing the lift off.


   A major Winter Storm has taken grip on the Mid-Atlantic States. Reports of 30+ inches of snowfall. With drifts of 4 - 5 feet.


   They will receive another 3 - 6 inches on Tuesday. Kind of like another coat of white paint on the side of the barn.

   Forecast Update:


   Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high around 60. Breezy, a west wind around 15 - 20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph.


   Monday night: Patchy frost after 12 am in some areas. Partly cloudy, with a low around 35. Northwest wind between 5 - 10 mph.


   Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high around 56. North wind around 5 mph.


   Sunday Night: Patchy frost after 12 am. Mostly clear, with a low around 36. Light north wind.


   Monday: Sunny, with a high around 65. East wind between 5 - 10 mph.


   Monday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 45.


   Tuesday:. Mostly cloudy, with a high around 73. A 40% chance of rain after 12 pm


   Tuesday Night:. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 43. A 30% chance of rain.


   On Tuesday we will have an approaching cold front from the west. Combined with a warm front lifting north through the area. This is where our rain chances will develop.


   Based on the latest model runs. It doesn't look like a major event. Maybe a quarter inch to half inch of rains with some isolated areas getting close to one inch.

   Later in the week, there could be a more significant weather system. There will be more information concerning that with the Sunday/Monday update.
