JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- Another round of heavy rain and storms will roll across Jacksonville, Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia through this evening. Be prepared for fast-changing weather as sun and hot temperatures give way to storms moving northeast at 10-15 mph. Storms will be most active for Jacksonville betweeen 4:30 and 9pm then slowly diminish. Expect rainfall rates of 1-3" per hour which will make for a rough afternoon commute and some localized flooding in some places. Storms will also produce hundreds of lightning strikes in less than 30 minutes and a few storms could produce damaging winds.
More of the same for Friday as heavy rain and storms develop by midday and continue through the afternoon. Click ** here
