Stalled Front Keeps Rain Chances Persistent Through Friday

The Southeast and Gulf Coast will be the focus of heavy rainfall in the next few days.

A stalled front will continue to bring showers and storms from Louisiana to Georgia, and increment moisture values from the Gulf of Mexico to the state of Florida. As a result, summer-like sea breezes showers and storms will energize across the state, as far south as Tampa.

In the Panhandle, showers and storms will be more widespread and consistent through Friday night. Most other areas in north and central Florida will not see activity until after the noon hour. Areas east of the I-75 corridor are likely to see stronger showers and storms after 3pm. These storms may have the potential of lasting past sundown.

Rain Chances Through Friday
Pensacola to Tallahassee: 60% - 80%
Jacksonville: 60% - 70%
Cedar Key to Gainesville: 30% - 50%
Ocala to Orlando: 50% - 60%
Tampa: 30% - 40%
