A River Flood Warning remains in effect for...the Saint Johns River...
at Astor...

A wide swath of heavy rainfall across most of north central Florida
on Thursday caused the river level at Astor to quickly rise into minor
flood stage. Although dry conditions are forecast over the next few
days, a steady north wind, tidal effects, and the very slow nature of
the Saint Johns River will result in little to no decline in the river
level through through this weekend, with a very gradual decline possibly
starting early next week.
