This rain event is not over yet. I understand that it is tough enough to get out of bed but when the rain is hitting the roof, you just want to roll over and let your clone go to work. If you don't have a body double, though, keep the umbrella handy for the rest of the day.
By early afternoon we may actually get a break before the evening showers hit. At this time I think the heaviest rain will hit from near Lake City up to Waycross, and, yes, there may be some showers for the ride home from work. It is possible that some isolated areas could get up to two inches by the time it is all done.
It was a rough start for folks in northern St. Johns County. Near St. Augustine the rain gauge had 1.10 inches but Doppler estimates are more like 1.6. Jax International had .34 inches with less than a tenth in Alma, Ga. NAS Jacksonville/Orange Park had almost half an inch.
It will be cooler today with highs in the low 60s. Tuesday we maxed out at 79.
On Thursday no excuses! It is up and at 'em as we begin to dry out. We should be looking at mid 70s for the weekend before the next round of rain Monday.
