More rain is on the way and, although the rain is a positive, it might be too much of a good thing with rounds of heavy storms lasting through Tuesday.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — SUNDAY: More rainfall on the way Sunday. However, the heavier storms will settle farther south - mainly from Gainesville to St. Augustine - with a low severe threat across central Florida. The rain will still come in batches, but anticipate it to be more consistent than Saturday where we had many dry hours in the middle of the day.

By the end of the weekend, southeast Georgia will have about 1-2" of rain in the rain gauge with about 2-4" in the bucket for northeast Florida.

Conditions remain unsettled with the stationary front continuing to bring in waves of energy from the Gulf of Mexico. The heaviest of the rain will stay settled across north-central Florida. Any rain that does fall may cause minor flooding - for low-lying areas or locations of poor drainage. Another 1-3" of rain will be possible over northeast Florida. with locally higher amounts. Afternoon temperatures stick in the 70s.

WEDNESDAY & BEYOND: That bright orb in the sky - the SUN! - will finally return later Wednesday into Thursday as conditions clear up thanks to another, stronger front moving through. Mornings will be cooler with temperatures in the lower 50s. Highs will remain in the 70s, but the humidity will be much lower through Friday. Rain chances look to increase once again by next weekend.
