JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The First Alert Weather Team is tracking the flooding rains this evening.
A First Alert Weather Day is in effect as we are tracking rain slowing pushing northward. Currently, heavy rain is bringing another 2-3 inches in already soaked areas including much of Duval County where an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory had to be issued by the National Weather Service. A few thunderstorms have popped up, but this is mainly a heavy rain event with flooding likely if not already happening in metro Jacksonville and towards the beaches.
Surrounding areas dealt with soaking rains earlier this afternoon and evening, but have since cleared. Now the rain is confined in Duval, portions of Nassau and up into Charlton and Ware County. Rain will begin to end in Duval close to 11PM while persisting for a few more hours in SE Georgia.
Flash flooding is a very serious hazard so be mindful about driving your car through standing or what appears to be low-flowing water in the roads.
More rain is expected to impact Southeast Georgia as the night wears on all in response to a frontal boundary pushing northward. This sets the stage for lots of rain to be dumped in a short amount of time. Tomorrow will feature a mix of sun and clouds with late day storms and heavy rain again.
