The Storm Prediction Center has areas in North Florida under a low risk for severe storms Thursday afternoon through early Friday morning. The main threat will be damaging winds up to 60 mph but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Severe Risk

The chance for rain goes up Thursday after 2 pm with the arrival of showers and storms ahead of the main front.
