JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- With the first official day of Spring comes another chance for showers and storms. However, a few storms have the chance to become strong to severe.
The rain is beginning to move in from the Gulf of Mexico across Florida's Big Bend. We will be tracking storms through the early to mid afternoon hours before much breezier, cooler, and drier conditions return.
Our final round of storms today moves offshore by 5:00 p.m. The main impacts will be damaging wind gusts, lightning, as well as large hail and the chance for isolated tornadoes.
Areas along the I-75 corridor in north Florida will begin to see shower and storm activity increase by 11:00 a.m. These will be fast moving, gusty downpours with lightning likely. By 1:00 p.m. the final line of storms will develop and move across our southeast Georgia counties. It will make its way into northeast Florida after 2:00 p.m. with a few storms becoming strong to severe. The storms will be pushing through southern areas of the First Coast from Palatka to St. Augustine by 4:00 p.m and offshore by 5:00 p.m.
