Drying out, mild and cloudy
Drying out, mild and cloudy

We saw much-needed rain in our coastal counties today, most area beaches saw over an inch of rain, along I-95 got closer to half of an inch to three quarters of an inch of rain. The heaviest rain was in southern St Johns county and northern Flagler county, where we saw three inches of rain in just over two hours- prompting minor and temporary flooding.

The rainfall will wind down during the evening hours, expect to dry out from the south to the north this evening. Expect cloudy skies and breezy overnight conditions. Temperatures will be mild, sinking down into the low 70s.

Wednesday will be drier, but not bone dry. Expect isolated mid morning showers. We will see breaks in the clouds, warming us into the upper 80s. Winds will be out of the southwest around 10 mph. We will see scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms firing up during the afternoon hours.

The launch is set for 4:33pm, and there is a 40% chance weather will interfere with the launch, with the primary concerns being rain or clouds along the flight path.

Thursday starts out partly cloudy and turns hot, topping out around 90 degrees. Expect afternoon clouds and then scattered showers and storms during the afternoon hours.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday look similar, topping out around 90 degrees after a partly cloudy morning. We expect 50% chances for showers and thunderstorms each afternoon.

Hot afternoons with scattered storms this week
