6:15 pm
so there are several different aspects of this storm to discuss. first of all, the winds, it does appear as if those strongest winds will stay offshore. there will be some wind damage in parts of florida but the most significant winds if it holds true to its current track will stay offshore. the rain, that's gonna be heavy. we're talking 4 to 7 inches. maybe isolated spots getting more than that. it's florida. they get heavy rain. there will be some reports of flooding from the rain. but the storm surge. as it moves up relatively parallel to the florida coast, it's kind of like a shovel, shoveling the moisture back in, not to mention the waves on shore. the storm surge is expected to get as high as 10 feet. anywhere from the space coast, daytona beach and possibly the jacksonville area, too. we'll have to keep a close eye on that. if this loop of a forecast holds, it will be here late
