Heavy Rains Have Already Flooded Families on Edge

Central Florida is bracing for another severe storm with no name expected to bring more heavy downpours areawide.

All of Central Florida should expect heavy rain and flooding, with dangerously high surf and beach erosion possible along the coastal counties.

Due to high water levels in the St. Johns River associated with recent rains, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking boaters to stay off populated areas of the river until the waters recede.

Continued southerly winds have kept abundant moisture in place, allowing isolated showers to brush along the coast Tuesday morning. Heading into the afternoon, the low pressure to our west will continue its march toward Florida. This system will be the main focus for periods of heavy rain and gusty winds.

As the low moves toward the Nature Coast, the atmosphere will be ripe for strong to severe storms. Many storms will exhibit rotation, and can spawn a tornado or waterspout without much notice.

The strongest storms will continue into the late evening hours. Overnight, scattered showers and isolated storms remain as the low pressure and its trailing boundary move through the region.

Wednesday morning, scattered showers will move offshore. The first boundary clears the area as the next front moves toward Central Florida during the early afternoon. Once this second boundary clears the area, northwest winds take over, making for a very breezy afternoon.

Brisk, northwest winds will usher in noticeably colder and drier weather for the rest of the week.
