National Weather Service Jacksonville FL
938 PM EDT Sun Oct 22 2017

.UPDATE...An increasingly moist south to southeast flow...ahead
of a potent deep layer trough...will continue to produce isolated
showers mainly across areas west of the I-75 corridor tonight.
While radar has indicated a weakening trend with this activity
the last several hours...isolated showers will persist across
this area. Another area of scattered showers and isolated storms
extended from the offshore Atlantic waters to the upper Se Ga
coast. This activity was associated with a coastal trough that
will weaken and lift north tonight which will keep most of
the activity offshore but an isolated shower still possible
near the coast.
