Ominous dark skies but no severe weather expected just needed rain!

January 2, 2011    Sunday 1:45 p.m.

Live Doppler radar continue to track showers across the area. The heaviest rain will continue to be in Duval County between now and 4 p.m. Some areas could pick up a quarter-inch. The latest live doppler radar scan through the clouds shows cloud tops at 10,000 feet and lightning is no longer being detected. While some areas are reporting dark, ominous skies no severe weather is expected. Another line of broken showers will develop and impact areas farther south including Keystone Heights, Palatka, and St. Augustine between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. while the rest of us dry out as a cold front moves through the area ushing in cooler, drier air.

So great news on both counts! Many areas are seeing the rain without the severe weather and this is on top of a good quarter to half-inch of rain we already received before this last round of rain across our viewing area. Make sure to tune in tonight for the latest rainfall amounts and I will catch up with you here on the blog with your pictures and weather story of the day. I will go out and snap some shots of those interesting clouds for you.
