JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It seems as if it's been feast or famine with the rainfall - and we've been feasting for the past week! More of the same on the way through our Sunday with numerous to widespread showers thanks to a soggy, tropical air mass in place.
The rain will move in from the southeast starting off light in nature, but picking up and becoming steadier as the day rolls on. A few showers may produce some claps of thunder after 2:00 p.m. mainly west of Highway 301. Highs top out in the upper 70s to near 80.
The heaviest of the rain will linger into the early evening hours mainly from Gainesville to Ocala on Sunday. However, our coastal areas are not in the clear with a muggy, southeast flow. This will also keep the chance for scattered showers east of I-95 tonight.
We should see a break in the rainfall by late Sunday night, but the upcoming week sticks to our recent tropical and soggy theme. Expect rounds of afternoon showers and thunderstorms for the time being with warm and muggy conditions - lows near 70; highs in the middle 80s.
There's a decent chance we'll keep this rainy weather pattern even as we head into Memorial Day weekend. Stay tuned, but don't cancel those outdoor plans just yet!
