JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We saw initial rounds of storms firing up during the early afternoon hours, now a second round of storms has fired up, which will push through our area through 7p.m. Expect a few strong to possibly severe storms, with damaging wind gusts, lightning, and flooding being the primary concerns. Slow moving thunderstorms may produce heavy rainfall and flooding, especially in Southeastern Georgia.

The storms will fade after 7pm for most areas, an isolated and short-lived round of rain may linger over our inland most counties after that, but should fade by midnight.

Thursday we wake up in the mid 70s and warm up into the low 90s. Expect partly cloudy skies to start and storms building after 3p.m., peaking in coverage between 4-6p.m. We may see strong to severe storms with gusty winds, lightning, and flooding.

Friday we wake up in the mid 70s and warm up into the upper 80s, with ever-so-slightly cooler temperatures topping out in the upper 80s, thanks to an earlier round of showers and thunderstorms firing up and limiting our heating potential.

Saturday looks similar to Friday, only topping out in the upper 80s with 60% chances for showers and storms.

Sunday warms up and limits the chances for rain more to the afternoon hours, with highs in the low 90s and 50% chances for showers and storms.

Monday will be hotter and breezy, with afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
