We are actually heading to St.Augustine and if I can I will try to talk the school out of the field trip so I am going in early to see what I can do. The big tropical plume of moisture is moving northwest with another 3 to 5 inches of rain on top of saturated ground. This would bring rain totals up to 15 to 20 inches in many parts of the Jacksonville and St.Augustine areas. These areas already have had numerous road closures. I will be back to tell you about your weekend. For now it is all about protecting the kids. Be safe and if you do not have to travel do not.

More Flooding on the Way with 30 INCHES PLUS FOR PARTS OF FLORIDA!
It is race weekend in Indiana and the weather is still looking great! But it is anything but great at another famous speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. The track that is usually full of race cars has been taken over by fish. Up to 20 inches of rain and then some is on the way for Daytona, while areas near Bunnell, Florida will likely see more than 30 inches of rain before this monster storm pulls away. In Jacksonville, where I am on my way to the IMAX on a field trip with the 4th graders I will be warning the bus drivers of flooded roads with more flood warnings likely to go into effect this morning. You can see why below.
