Showers fade and make way for a “cool front” Tuesday
Good evening! After another humid and stormy day we’re drying out tonight. Come Tuesday we’ll welcome a “cool front” into the area that will bring some showers and storms, but most importantly drop our humidity and leave those north of the front with beautiful weather come Wednesday morning.
Active Friday for some and more rain is likely
It’s been an unsettled Friday for parts of the area, and the threat for rain and storms will persist into the evening. The highest chance for activity will be in coastal Georgia, where a Flood Watch continues. Temperatures this evening will be in the 70s.
Wet weather pattern starts today, Flood Watch in effect
Wet weather pattern starts today. A Flood Watch is in effect for NE FL and SE GA through early Sunday morning. Rounds of rain will start later today as a cold front stalls over the area. The front will weaken, although remaining as a focus for locally heavy rainfall.
The heat gets beat back by building storms
Central Duval County in northeastern Florida... * Until 300 PM EDT. * At 231 PM EDT, a severe thunderstorm was located over Riverside, or over Jacksonville, moving southeast at 5 mph. HAZARD...60 mph wind gusts and quarter size hail. SOURCE...Radar indicated. IMPACT...Hail damage to vehicles is expected. Expect wind damage to roofs, siding, and trees.
Forget the flip flops, you may need flippers
The dry start to the day has given way to building storms this afternoon. The rain will be slow moving with storms tracking over Clay and Baker counties and building north and northeast into Duval and coastal areas of St. Johns counties through the evening.
Southern counties saw the heaviest of rains, including areas of Jacksonville’s Westside
Living in Georgia, or even Jacksonville’s Northside you would be confused about the discussion of heavy rains. Folks there remained generally dry. Yet, where the rains came down hard, they really piled up. At one time there was a flood warning in effect for Jacksonville’s Westside.
Locally heavy rain could lead to flooding again today
Light rain near the Gulf Coast with a few showers north of I-10. Locally heavy rounds of slow moving storms could lead to local flooding. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop around 2 p.m. These will continue to push across northeast Florida and southeast Georgia with strong to isolated severe storms, hail, local flooding, lots of lightning and gusty wind. Cloudy skies with patchy fog overnight.
Skies darken and the rain returns
The heat is blazing but just soon enough the storms will replace it with some heavy downpours this evening. Showers and storms will track toward the cost late this afternoon and into the evening. Some strong storms are possible. Like yesterday the heaviest rain will be around the St. Johns River and back to the coast with the potential for hail, local flooding, and lots of lightning from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Cloudy skies with patchy fog overnight.
Summer pattern continues: Scattered showers with storms
Seasonal temperatures and partly cloudy skies will start the day. Clouds will build along the sea breeze and the stalled cold front with scattered showers and storms developing after 2 p.m. Locally heavy rainfall and strong thunderstorms are possible through sunset tonight. Some showers may linger through 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Finally Friday and your Game Time forecast
A cloudy start with showers developing this morning near the Gulf then moving inland. A cold front will approach the area from the north, stalling across northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Scattered showers possible around kick off tonight followed by cloudy skies tonight.
