Tropical rain bursts push westward

Showers with storms pick up this weekend

. (.)

Many of the showers and thunderstorms that have covered Duval and Clay counties will continue to push west of I-95 through the afternoon. Areas of rain and a few thunderstorms will continue to press westward and target regions near I-75 corridor by late afternoon and early evening. Then look for drier conditions to arrive overnight with temperatures mainly in the 80s.

By morning along coastal areas, isolated morning showers are possible Friday before clearing out by late morning as storms head westward. Rain potential backs off as we lose some of the deep tropical moisture. The decrease will be brief before wetter conditions return during the weekend afternoons.

Saturday and Sunday a 50% chance of rain heads inland during the day as the east coast sea breeze fills in. Best chance for showers will be at the coast in the mornings, before thunderstorms flare up over Inland locations in the afternoons.

None of the two tropical systems in the Gulf or Atlantic have any impact on our weather.
