JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- A major shift in the weather pattern for Jacksonville, Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia that will last into early next week. Thunderstorms quite literally exploded up and downt the I-75 corridor this afternoon but will stay well inland and the worst will stay to the west of Jacksonville. If you are traveling west on I-10 or south on I-95 and eventually I-4, expect very heavy rainfall into this evening. There will be some moderate rain on Jacksonville's westside with some light rain as far east as the I-95 corridor. This change in the weather pattern will become even more evident Friday through the weekend. One very serious note of caution: rip currents will be a significant threat at area beaches through Sunday. Remember to never swim alone....always swim near a lifeguard....and don't panic if you're caught in a rip current. Otherwise the next several days will be quite pleasant for mid June. Breezy northeast winds will blow 10-20 mph inland but as much as 20-25 mph near the coast. Daytime temperatures will only top out in the low 80s at the beaches...mid to upper 80s inland. While a few showers could occur from time to time near the coast overnight into the early morning hours and well inland in the afternoon, overall rainfall amounts should be light with only a brief duration of rain, if any at all.
