JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Downpours are nearing tonight ahead of a Weather Authority Alert Day tomorrow.

Overnight, there will be another round of rains moving in from the southwest. Expect widespread rainfall, mostly eastward with a northward drift. Another ½ to 1″ of rain is expected. We may see minor, temporary flooding from heavy rainfall, particularly in areas that see training storms. Then during the day tomorrow, another round of rain is expected. Sometime around midmorning through midday will be the wettest. This second round should slide southward through the day, leaving Southeastern Georgia with the least rainfall and clearing skies after 4 p.m.

Total additional rainfall: 2-3″

We may see a few strong thunderstorms during the afternoon hours. Skies will be mostly cloudy, temperatures will top out in the upper 70s and winds will be out of the southwest between 7-12 mph.

Widespread chances for rain sunrise Thursday, which means another gloomy start. By Thursday afternoon, our rain chances are cut in half but don’t expect bone dry weather. As we warm up in the afternoon hours, we will see scattered storms developing. Expect similar rain chances on Friday and Saturday.

The forecast finally dries out on Sunday, with low chances for rain and sunnier skies. We don’t stay dry for long, Monday’s rain chances bounce back up to 50%.

More rains for Wednesday
