Flooding will be a concern by late Friday into the weekend


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- I'm meteorologist Mike Prangley and our weather pick of the week lived up to its name. But the tropical trouble out in the Pacific with a record-setting season is catching up to us. Moisture from what once was Hurricane Odile continues to move our way and it will combine forces with a trough of low pressure bringing plenty of rain and more flood concerns.

Tonight will be mostly clear to start with increasing high clouds late. Fog should not be a huge issue with lows in the upper 60s to the middle 70 at the beach.

Friday you will need the umbrella with increasing showers likely becoming heavier in the afternoon. There may be a few storms by late day but most of the lightning should be out of the area in time for high school football. But you will need the ponchos with rain showers that are expected to linger into the evening.

The weekend will start soggy but there is hope for drier weather in time for the Jags home opener. Stay tuned for updates!
