    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Onshore winds pick up on Sunday as Invest 98-L gets its act together and moves away from Florida. That will rough up the seas/surf along the coast and keep the beaches a bit breezy. Coastal showers will tapper off by noon, leaving mainly dry conditions east of I-95. For inland locations showers pick up after 3pm mainly over I-10 and I-75 with most of the activity dissipating by 10pm. 



    Showers and storms on Sunday start in the morning along the coast, move over I-95 midday and track inland by evening. Heavy rain and lightning are the main concerns tomorrow. It will be hot and humid when it's not raining, with temperatures slightly below average.
