June 11, 2019 — May turned dry on us.... & hot. Jacksonville finally broke - on Mon., June 10th - a streak of 17 straight days 90+ with 23 for the year already (annual avg. is 82 days). The drought monitor map (updated weekly every Thu.) shows a dramatic increase in the "abnormally" dry area.
The "wet season" usually kicks in during June but can range anywhere from mid May to mid to late June as indicated by the last 10 years.
The wet season accounts - on avg. - for more than half of Jacksonville's annual rainfall.
If & when the clouds part enough, enjoy a good show put on by Jupiter. Due to its "close" proximity, you will even be able to make out 4 of the larger moons by simply using binoculars or, of course, a telescope. Night skies below + Jupiter nfo: "SkyandTelescope"
