JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Radar shows Friday's rains starting as snowflakes about 16,000 to 20,000 feet above Jacksonville. The snowflakes melt, the leftover raindrops evaporate as they fall through dry air giving Jacksonville a drippy day.
Mainly just sprinkles, with a few showers here and there.
Rainfall amounts have been light, but that's a problem as well, as there have been numerous accidents along the major roadways. As of 5 p.m. roads were slowly improving as they slowly dry out. But, stay cautious when driving this evening.
The cause of all this? A disturbance in the upper-atmosphere that will be around tonight and parts of Saturday and Sunday. Never a real washout, tonight will remain drippy, Saturday and Sunday will have a mix of limited sunshine and showers.
Best way to track all of these nuisance showers is to download the WJXT Weather Authority App. Seriously, this is a great app that shows the radar right down to where you are.
