Catching the Beloved Redfish
Florida is known for having some of the best fishing in the world. You don’t have to travel far here in Jacksonville to find some great spots, however having a good guide can make all the difference in the world. I recently met up with Captain Fred Rounsaville. He has been fishing the waters of NE Florida for over 25 years specializing in light tackle inshore and near shore fishing.
Cloudy & chilly tonight, rainy Saturday with chilly temperatures
Today stays dry but as clouds filter in this evening rain will develop Saturday with a cool and breezy couple days. Tonight, elevated northeast winds at the coast around 10-15 keep temps from falling below the upper 50s while inland lows will be in the upper 40s°. The bulk of the rain impacts only Northeastern Florida staying south of Georgia. Best timing will be in the mid day/afternoon but some spotty showers may briefly be possible during the morning. Temperatures will be in the 60s over the weekend with lows from the mid 30s to the upper 40s.
Tornado Watch Florida Georgia until 10 pm
A tornado watch until 10 pm has been issued for NE Florida and SE Georgia for the potential for severe strorms capable of triggering tornadoes. Latest radar loop shows isolated storms increasing across portion of northern Florida, with the most severe being across Putnam County exhibiting updraft rotation. It is expected for severe storms to lift northward through the late afternoon and early evening. One regime should emanate northeast across north Florida with a primary risk for a couple tornadoes and locally damaging winds. The second regime should spread east-northeast from southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle with a few tornadoes and damaging winds as the primary hazards.
Scattered weekend rain chances
Were off to a mild start in the upper 60s low 70s with some scattered showers moving on shore and staying east of the I-95 corridor. Our chance for scattered storms will increase later this morning into the afternoon. Ahead of the rain the National Weather Service has issued at Flash Flood Watch starting at 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. tonight. Sunday will bring another below average day in the 80s with a 50% chance for scattered showers. Rain sticks around Monday before we start to dry out on Tuesday through the rest of the week.
