First Alert Weather: Gusty showers continue through the end of the week

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — First Alert Meteorologist Trevor Gibbs is tracking rain through the end of the week.

Scattered showers continue to stream in off the Atlantic this afternoon with wind gusts of 20-30 mph. Rain will be briefly heavy and generally not amount to much (< 0.50″).


Thursday will be similar with showers at times, gusty winds, and a continued risk of rip currents in the high surf. Thursday night into Friday morning will feature bands of moderate/heavy rain and gusty winds as our “disturbance” passes overhead.

Summer-like pattern returns for the weekend with hot temperatures and afternoon storms.

As for the tropics, Tropical Storm Alberto will move into Mexico early Thursday. There are no local impacts.


A disorganized cluster of showers/storms is approaching the Bahamas and will move right overhead Friday. This will bring more beneficial rain (up to 1-1.5″ along the coast), gusty winds (up to 40 mph) and rough beach weather (5-7 ft. breakers) through Friday.

Any further development into something tropical is not expected but we are watching it.
