Deep tropical moisture will move out of the Gulf of Mexico and will interact with a low pressure system and frontal boundary that will track across SE GA & NE FL Today through Wednesday Night. There will be several "waves" of heavy rainfall/possible severe weather which will end early Thursday Morning.
1) Heavy Rainfall remains the main threat with widespread storm totals of 2 to 4 inches and locally higher amounts as indicated in the attached rainfall graphic. Highest totals are expected along the I-75 corridor of inland NE FL and the Suwannee River Basin of inland NE FL. Localized Flooding is expected area-wide and isolated pockets of flash flooding will be possible.
2) Isolated Severe Storms will be possible Today through Wed Night as indicated in the attached SPC graphics that place the area in a Marginal Risk. The main threat would be damaging winds although an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
