After strong storms passed through Saturday afternoon there were multiple reports of strong wind gusts above 60 mph. The National Weather Service reported a 60 mph gust at the airport. The NWS said that is the second highest wind gust on record for the month of April at the Jacksonville International Airport.

Overnight we’ll stay on the drier side with lows in the low 60s.

Sunday will be another active weather day across NE FL, mainly south of the I-10 corridor.

Chief Meteorologist John Gaughan has concerns about Sunday. Gaughan says, ”One of my all-time favorite severe storm indicators is still off the charts for later tonight through early Sunday afternoon. This would be for severe storms and possible tornadoes from I-10 south to Central Florida.”

Rain chances will follow us into Sunday early morning/afternoon with a better chance to see more widespread heavy rainfall. Models are still uncertain but right now those along and south of the I-10 corridor could see 1″-2″ of rainfall where those north of I-10 could see 0.5″-1.0″. Long story short we will see rain Sunday.

Afternoon highs Sunday will sit in the upper 70s low 80s.

Sunshine returns Monday with highs in the low 80s.
