Danielle says our rainfall chances today may put a damper on your Sunday plans
Happy Sunday! We’re off to another wet start with light to moderate rainfall building along the Gulf Coast and tracking east. Over the last 3 hours those across NE FL have seen 0.5"-1.0" or rain.
Over the last 24 hours some locations in our southern counties including Putnam and Flagler have seen 3″-4″ of rainfall. These highly saturated grounds pose a risk for localized flooding over the next 72 hours.
Another round of heavy rain will develop Sunday afternoon/evening mainly south of the I-10 corridor as a cold front sinks south and stalls in central Florida. These storms will last through the night into Monday. Impacts include heavy rainfall, lightning and small hail.
This front will sit near our southern counties including St. Johns, Flagler and Putnam through Tuesday. New rainfall totals could climb another 2-3 inches at this point. Localized flooding is definitely a concern.
Those across SE GA will be on the drier side as the front sinks south with only isolated rain chances through Tuesday and a glimpse of sun here and there.
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 Monday through Tuesday.
Starting Wednesday we’ll dry out through the end of the 7-day stretch.
