JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- A very slow morning commute likely...if you live in a flood-prone area, stay alert for rising water
.....bands of moderate to heavy rain will continue to stream west off the Atlantic across Jacksonville and much of Northeast Florida and far Southeast Georgia into at least Friday morning. There will be the potential for rainfall totals of 3-6", locally 6"+ where bands become relatively stationary anywhere from the I-95 corridor to the beaches with a possible bullseye over Eastern Duval, St. Johns, Clay and Nassau Counties. A flood WATCH will remain in effect along with a "First Alert Weather Day" through Friday. Flood WARNINGS are in effect for some areas. Strong east winds will blow 15-25 mph with higher gusts causing rough seas and surf along with a high rip current risk at area beaches. Because the ground is saturated, trees will be more susceptible than usual to being uprooted. There may also be sporadic power outages. Temperatures will stay in the 60s overnight and only rise into the 70s Friday. The most persistent and heaviest rain should diminish Friday afternoon into the evening. More rain will move into the area Saturday, especially in the afternoon into the evening. Send First Alert weather photos and video ** here
