JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Lots of pluses, but they all add up to be a negative, A big wet negative.

Deep tropical moisture, plus a hurricane nearing the Panhandle, plus an old front draped across the Florida - Georgia line is causing quite the convergence of moisture and now downpours across Clay, Duval, Nassau, Camden, Charleton counties.

Mind you, tonight’s downpours are not hitting every backyard, but a few backyards will see up to an inch of rain before they fade around midnight.
