"All systems go" for nice local weather & excellent travel weather through the weekend. Anywhere within a 12-15 hour drive of Jax will be mostly dry & where any showers occur, it will be light with no threat for ice or snow. One potential concern will be fog in the early morning hours. Click here

for airport delays.
So the First Alert Forecast is dry through at least Tue. The area is starting to feel the effects of 4-5 weeks of mostly dry weather. This is no surprise given that Nov. is climatologically the driest month of the year in Jax. Since Sept. 1st at JIA, the 13.49" of rain is 3.64" below avg. (there has only been a quarter of an inch this month so far). Since Jan. 1, rain is just 2.23" above avg at JIA - a testimony to the very dry first 5 months of the year. The bottom line is we need some rain, & the fire danger is ever increasing. No measurable rain, however, for the First Coast until at least the middle of next week.
A beautiful "mackeral" sky Tue. evening. Called such because the altocumulus clouds resemble fish scales. The first photo below is from my wife....the 2nd is from Christy Wolf near JIA...the 3rd image is a still frame from our Jack Hanania skycam at the Jacksonville Landing.
