Afternoon isolated storms will build again around 3 p.m. and last through 9 p.m. These storms could be on the stronger side with high winds and possible hail.

Saturday afternoon highs will sit in the mid 70s.

Sunday morning will be another day filled with off and on showers. Southeast Georgia can expect some heavy rainfall early Sunday morning before drying out.

Those across northeast Florida can expect and few showers Sunday morning but the bulk of the rainfall will move in Sunday evening as a frontal system stalls to our south. This front will sit near our southern counties including St. Johns, Flagler and Putnam through Tuesday.

Sunday afternoon highs will sit in the low 70s.

This pattern will allow for periods of heavy rainfall Sunday night through Tuesday mainly south of I-10. Those southern counties can expect another 1-2 inches of rainfall those days.

Starting Wednesday we’ll dry out through the end of the 7-day stretch.
