Strong thunderstorms bringing inches of rain to entire First Coast

Tim Deegan believes the heavy rain will increase Wednesday.

As storms pelted the First Coast with high winds and heavy rainfall Tuesday afternoon into the nighttime, the National Weather Service is forecasting even stronger weather Wednesday into Thursday.

The heftiness and frequency of the storms is expected to pick up beginning in the late afternoon Wednesday into sunrise Thursday and residents may need to be concerned with flooding in some parts of the First Coast.

No area - no county in Georgia in Florida that gets First Coast News - will escape the storms heading our way. It will be important to be mindful of the forecast and expect weather delays during your commute home from work tomorrow.

Severe storms with the potential for tornadoes is to be expected. Our First Coast News Weather Team will keep you updated throughout the day. Look for Lindsey Boetsch and Mike Prangley in the morning, Lauren Rautenkranz through the day and, as always, Tim Deegan into the night.

Looking forward from Friday to Memorial Day, we should expect plenty of sunshine and temperatures heating up into the lower 90s. We may have a pop-up storm by Memorial Day.
