Flooding is a concern with the rain. First Alert Meteorologist Corey Simma says an Areal Flood Watch is in effect for St. Johns County through Tuesday night because of the potential for heavy rain Monday and Tuesday on very saturated ground. We will see scattered storms again Tuesday before the cold front moves through.

Simma says very nice weather is in store for the second half of the week!
