Another wet weather system will spread rain west to east through the day Wed. with some heavy rain at times including some thunder.  Temps. will be much cooler falling into the 50s to around 60 once the rain begins in earnest.
A secondary disturbance will bring some light rain Wed. night-early Thu. then only slowly thinning clouds will keep temps. Thu. in the 50s to lower 60s.  Temps. will be chilly enough for a bit of inland frost -- near & west of Highway 301 -- early Fri.  Radar imagery below courtesy S. Fl. Water Management District:

Speaking of frost....Feb. 26th is the avg. last date of a freeze for JIA.  It's quite a bit later for areas west & north of Jax -- the first week or two of March.  We have, however, had a freeze as late as early April!  But 50% of the time, the last freeze is on or before Feb. 26th.  See a map of the avg. last freeze for Fl. ** here **.

The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST on Feb. 24, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event - click ** here **.

A Global Precipitiation Measurement satellite is scheduled to launch from Japan Thu., Feb. 27th.  This satellite has the potential to greatly enhance weather observations on the ground + improve the accuracy of forecasts -- click ** here ** the story.  Photo below from NASA:
