Beneficial Rains...More on the way

An energized jet stream is proving to be beneficial for the First Coast area. Officially, o.72 inches of rain fell in Jacksonville on Wednesday. This brings the monthly total to 1.47 inches for month, so far. Jacksonville only averages 3.69 inches of precipitation in January. That means we are more than halfway there of the expected precipitation.

More rainfall is on the way too. It looks another decent shot of rainfall in the forecast for Tuesday. In fact, even though small in size, this weather system is seemingly to be potent and will user some of the coldest weather since December. In fact, a string of freezes is possible starting on Thursday the 13th and lasting through Sunday the 16th.

Recent rainfall has lowered the fire threat substantially. The last time the entire North Florida area was at "low" was way back in October. Look for the threat to diminish even further as a series of unsettled should affect the area throughout the month.
