The Weather Authority Alert day has been extended until 6:30 tonight due to the wash-out conditions expected.

The rain began even before Tropical Storm Cristobal entered the picture. It has been raining for two days sending as much as 7 inches of rain to parts of Duval county...and more is coming today.

Although some ares will see breaks in the rain this afternoon it is certainly not done. Another 1-2 inches is possible into the evening.

The rain started light Saturday and picked up overnight into Sunday morning.

The heavy rainfall Sat afternoon/evening across eastern Marion, Putnam, Clay, Flagler, St Johns Counties have produced significant rises on the Ocklawaha and St. Johns River Basins and into the Black Creek system of Clay County but significant river flooding not expected from past rainfall.

Rain totals as of 10:30 Sunday morning for the past 24 hours were exceptional with 7.02″ on the Westside.

Other areas: JAX International 2.52″, Neptune Beach 2.47″, Flagler Beach 2.97″, Yulee 2.62″, Live Oak 6.26″ Folkston 2.52″, Fleming Island 2.23″, St. Augustine 2.46″.

Pockets of heave rain targeted western Duval with over 5 inches of rain orange colors. Some spots over 7" (wjxt)

Any localized heavy rainfall in the Black Creek Basin today could push Creek levels closer to flood stages if the forecast turns out wetter than anticipated.

Most storms were not severe and should stay under the danger threshold.
