Update on the Soggy Sunday Expected

  1. Entire state gets measurable rain
  2. Morning in panhandle, afternoon/evening across peninsula
  3. Most areas around an inch, locally higher

Sunday will be a soggy day across the Sunshine State.  We have no doubts about it.  This isn't the best of news for NFL Pro Bowl fans or players.

The latest data suggests the storm system likely to produce the washout will arrive in the Florida Panhandle Saturday night, then strengthen as it moves across the rest of the state Sunday afternoon and evening. A large area of rain, with a few embedded thunderstorms, is expected to develop ahead of the approaching front and in many spots, produce several hours of rain.  The quick-moving storm system will then exit the state early Monday.


Thunderstorms are also possible as the storm system nears Sunday evening, especially embedded in some of the heavier rain bands. However, at this time, thunderstorms capable of producing wind damage or hail are not anticipated.

Rainfall totals will generally be around an inch in most areas, with locally up to two inches of rain possible before the storm system exits Monday.
