A moist onshore east wind will continue through Fri. so bands of showers will continue to move swiftly west from the Atlantic producing heavy rain at times with sun inbetween showers. The mix of rain & sun provided for lots of rainbows. Photos below are from "Norm's backyard" & Tina Barrington, Fleming Island. The last photo is from "E-Rock" Rasmussen - a nice shot of a squall moving over downtown Jax.
Not as wet for the weekend but pretty hot & humid. Isolated to widely scattered showers & storms will still develop but will be hit-&-miss. Highs will top out in the mid 80s to near 90 degrees, a little lower at the beaches.
So the Jags game still looks hot with game temps. well into the 80s, heat indices 90-95, E/SE wind 5-15 mph & the threat for a brief shower or storm.
