JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - WATCH LIVE: Meteorologist Garrett Bedenbaugh has your First Alert forecast on CBS47 at Noon:
Steady light to moderate rain has been ongoing in the metro early this morning so there will be a lot of wet roads for the morning commute. The current band of rain will exit before the morning commute gets going but additional showers are likely to still swing through. Moderate rain has been ongoing through Waycross and Brunswick too with a general decrease in rain by mid morning.
Much of the widespread steady rain has ended but periods of showers and a few thunderstorms continue today ahead of a cold front. You'll like these temps the cold front brings! #FirstAlertWX @ActionNewsJax pic.twitter.com/LKau8rsywA— Stacey Garvilla (@StaceyGarvilla) October 16, 2019
Areas may dry out some before another round of rain and a few thunderstorms moves in for the afternoon. By this evening, a drying trend will be underway as a cold front swings through bringing winds from the north.
