Showers fade Sunday night

Weather Authority Alert Day is over

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A round of showers and storms that moved across our area prompted a Weather Authority Alert Day on Sunday.

We saw a large area of moderate rainfall track northeast Saturday evening. People in that area saw hours of rain, with amounts up to an inch. While an inch is not a lot of rain, that was on top of the 3-5 inches that has fallen since last weekend.

Clay, Putnam and St. Johns counties were under a tornado warning for parts of Sunday afternoon as showers and stormes pushed through. The National Weather Service also issued a flood warning for Clay, Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns counties until 5:15 p.m.

On Sunday afternoon, St. Augustine got about 2 inches of rain and Jacksonville got about 1.3 inches. There were some reports of downed trees near State Road 13A and some flooding on County Road 65.

The roads remain slick and wet, and the greatest impact will be on your Valentine’s Day plans, whether traveling or going out for a meal.

The Weather Authority Alert Day ended shortly before 6 p.m., and showers will fade Sunday night.

Two rounds of rain/storms expected
