The heat is building this afternoon and scattered showers and thunderstorms are growing in coverage.
Storms will track swiftly back to the coast from inland locations through the next several hours. Many will cover Putnam, Clay, and Bradford counties this afternoon. Some heavy rain around I-95 by 5 pm may linger through 8-9 pm near coastal areas of Duval.
Rain is expected to become more active tomorrow in the afternoon. A front sagging into north Florida will enhance rain potential Wednesday.
Today is the warmest this week with high temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s for inland areas. By Thursday temps only reach the low 70s.
Thursday will be behind the front with persistent clouds, breezy and cooler conditions in the lower 70s. Some light sprinkles are possible throughout the day, especially closer to the coast.
Breezy and drier weather returns Friday into the weekend.
