One more day of damp conditions

Periods of light rain through the day


A big batch of steady rain is moving up from central Florida. This will move in through the afternoon and evening hours replacing the intermittent light showers we had this morning.

Periods of showers continue across all areas but the heaviest rain will target Duval, Clay, St. Johns and Flagler. Gray skies and gusty onshore winds that may reach 25-30 mph at the coast.

Rain accumulations today will be around a half inch with some amounts over an inch south of St. Augustine to Palatka.

Highs only reach near 70 today and 75 on Friday.

An area of low pressure off the coast of South Florida will move away from the state pulling in drier air tomorrow. This will help diminish showers tonight.

Saturday is dry but mostly cloudy with more sunshine Sunday. The cool mornings in the 50s warm to the mid-70s during the day.
