Florida Gets Soaked Again

Much of the state of Florida will be dealing with another day of drenching showers and thunderstorms.

A frontal boundary has stalled out across the northern part of the state, and a wave of low pressure moving along the frontal boundary is bringing even more moisture to areas which have already seen a few inches of rain.

The area which will see the most rain on Wednesday will be very similar to what happened yesterday. Along the I-10 corridor from Tallahassee to Jacksonville, and southward towards Orlando, Melbourne, and Tampa will have a soggy day coming up. Another 1-2 inches of rain will soak much of this area, with some locations picking up as much as 4 or 5 inches of rain.

This rainfall is in addition to the widespread totals of 1-2 inches which occurred on Tuesday.

There is little if any relief from the wet weather in Florida this week. The front is expected to remain nearly stationary, with thunderstorms developing across much of the state each day.
