Tornado Watch expires for St. Johns, Putnam counties, more storms possible today

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Action News Jax First Alert Weather Team has declared a tornado watch is in effect for St. Johns and Putnam counties until 11 a.m.

The First Alert Weather Team said Putnam County was already under a tornado warning from 2:30 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Wednesday.

First Alert Meteorologist Corey Simma says storms and showers will continue through the morning and will clear up in the afternoon as temperatures rise. The best chance for rain and strong storms will be south of I-10.


There may be a lingering shower or storm Wednesday evening near the Florida-Georgia border.

Thursday and Friday will be dry, sunny and hot.

The next chance for storms arrives Saturday, but the weekend shouldn’t be a washout.

Action News Jax’s First Alert Weather Team will continue to monitor the forecast and will bring you updates throughout the day.
