Cloudy start with sun later

Look for my article on News4jax weather news section, I discussed the subtle but important weather shifts that take place around the 20th of August. Because tonight we are witnessing them! Broad area of deep tropical moisture is rolling in from the south and with it moderate to an occasional downpours of rain. Nothing severe, but cracks of lightning and rumbles of thunder will be what folks will be going to bed to tonight. The heaviest will be west of US 301. Coastal counties, including Duval will receive mostly just light rains overnight. These rains will be moving so amounts will be generally less than 2″ out west and maybe up to a half-inch around Duval County. Overnight low temperatures will not change much, about 73° as the sun attempts to peak through the clouds in the morning.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday will also see this subtle but important shift in the rain pattern. The shift? The shift is to, anytime thundershowers/downpours. Most will be during the later afternoon and evening hours. Sunrise temperatures will be in the mid 70s and afternoon highs should touch 90°. 3 - Day rainfall amounts will be up to 2″ in a general sense, with isolated neighborhoods seeing more than 4″

Keep a watchful view of the Tropics as TD #13 is the one to watch!
