Storms fade in time for fireworks tonight

Humid and damp conditions linger

By Mark Collins - Meteorologist

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Storms are over east of I-95 but light rain could stick around and fade through 8 pm.
Storms will continue through 8 pm around highway 301. We have seen very little movement with the rain so expect heavy downpours.

Most activity will be over by 9 pm for fireworks but it could be close with lingering spots of rain until 10 pm near Columbia, western Baker, Alachua counties and possibly into southern inland Georgia.

Overnight will be steamy and warm with lows in the mid 70s.

Friday will be identical to today with a 60% chance of storms developing around 2 pm. A few isolated strong t-storms likely with wind and hail threats increasing from 3-6 pm.

The heat will be a touch less brutal in the low 90s.

Friday: Partly cloudy with isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms, inland chances 50-70 percent, beaches 30-40 percent. Showers and storms will develop between 2pm-7pm. Wake up temperatures in the 70s with light patchy fog. Highs in the upper 80s to low 90s inland, upper 80s along the beaches. Wind W/SE 5-10 mph.
