JACKSONVILLE, Fla.11:15 a.m. UPDATE:  Heavy showers and thunderstorms continue to redevelop to the west of Jacksonville as of this update. They are currently moving east-northeast ahead of a front that is also working its way through the panhandle.

Rounds of heavy rain are anticipated to arrive beginning between around 2 p.m. According to Chief Meteorologist John Gaughan, expect the rounds of heavy rain to last up until about game time. Then the weather should begin to abate. 

There are currently no watches or warnings in effect nor are any anticipated in the near term. If you're headed to the game, definitely wear water-friendly Jags gear as umbrellas are not allowed in the stadium.

It's a rainy game day for Jaguars fans. Thursday night, the Jags will take on the Tennessee Titans. 

Thursday morning, showers and isolated storms moved through Jacksonville, toward the beaches.

Sunshine and breezy, warm conditions will lead to a few more afternoon and evening showers.

Downpours will continue through the evening around the time Jaguars fans are out tailgating and through the start of the game. The wet weather will clear late into Thursday night.

Some of the downpours will include gusty winds.

Most showers should end by kick-off as temperatures reach nearly 80 degrees.
