Assignment: Predict the 24 hr precipitation amount (inches) for Jacksonville-International, FL (KJAX)

In addition to the extreme cold over the eastern U.S., it looks like the big weather story this week will be the development of a strong low pressure center off of the Florida coast and the potential for a serious winter storm later in the week in the Northeast, depending partly on how close the low will be to the coast. To begin, let's predict Wednesday precipitation amount for Jacksonville, Florida. The latest MOS jumps up to nearly 2 inches of rain, although there may be some wintry precip mixed in. Along with high winds and cold temperatures, it's good that this is happening after the bowl season in Florida is over.
