There is a line of thunderstorms extending from Interlachen in Putnam County to Ponte Vedra in St Johns County this morning, with additional development of storms moving into the west coast Florida that will move into Northeast Florida during the morning commute. The best potential for winds to produce wind gusts exceeding 60 mph with this wave of storms is mainly south of Interstate 10 into north central Florida.
Low temperatures, sky cover and rain chances Tonight.
A few waves of showers and thunderstorms are expected today and tonight. During the pre-dawn hours this morning, showers and thunderstorms will push into the Suwannee Valley of NE Florida. Then push through the rest of NE FL during the early morning commute. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible with each wave today and tonight. The Storm Predicition Center has the entire region in a Slight Risk for Severe Weather. Wind gusts of in excess of 60 mph possible with the strongest storms. There may be isolated pockets in Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida that may have localized damage to roofs, siding, and trees. Hail up to the size of quarters may be possible and an isolated Tornado cannot be ruled out today and tonight.
A few waves of showers and thunderstorms are expected through tonight. The atmosphere is very saturated, with significant rainfall through tonight. Generally, 2-3 inches of rainfall are anticipated, with substancially local higher amounts very feasible perhaps causing some areas to have localized flooding through tonight. Several rounds of rain through tonight across Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. With these rounds of heavy rain occurring, any training of rain can lead to flood problems. In meteorology, training denotes repeated areas of rain, typically associated with thunderstorms, that move over the same region in a relatively short period of time. Training thunderstorms are capable of producing excessive rainfall totals, often causing flooding. The name training is derived from how a train and its cars travel along a track (moving along a single path), without the track moving. Remember, Turn Around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. If excessive runoff from heavy rainfall occurs today there may be flooding of small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways and streets and underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.
High temperatures, sky cover and rain chances for Thursday.
