JACKSONVILLE, Fla - At 4:44p.m, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy rain across the warned area. Up to three inches of rain have already fallen. Flash flooding is expected to begin shortly. Some locations that will experience flooding include Arlington, Normandy, Riverside, San Marco and Tallyrand.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Today was hot, with near-record highs in the upper 90s this afternoon. Expect a slow cool down this evening, down through the 90s during sunset and through the 80s during the evening hours. After midnight we will break into the 70s and then end up in the mid 70s for an overnight low. 

Wednesday will be another hot one, but less likely to challenge the afternoon high temperature record for the day. We will wake up in the mid 70s and warm up into the upper 90s, topping out at 98°. Expect partly cloudy skies and an isolated (10%) chance for a pop up shower during the afternoon hours.

Thursday will be hot and sunny, starting in the mid 70s and warming up into the upper 90s for an afternoon high. 

Friday looks hot as well, under partly cloudy skies we will warm from the mid 70s into the mid 90s. 

Saturday kicks off a weekend weather pattern where we wake up in the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies. We will warm up into the mid 90s with a 30% chance for scattered showers during the afternoon hours. The rain over the weekend will not be enough or nearly widespread enough to help lower our fire danger. That pattern holds through the beginning of the work week.
