A multifaceted storm will unleash flooding rainfall and localized severe weather across Florida to close out the weekend.
The same storm that produced flooding in Texas on Friday night and is unleashing a major snow and ice event in North Carolina and Virginia will trigger downpours and gusty thunderstorms across northern and central Florida on Sunday.
Disruptions due to rain and flooding are possible along the Interstate 10, 75 and 95 corridors.
The greatest risk for flooding will be in low-lying and poor drainage areas.
The strongest storms that rumble across the Sunshine State can trigger localized tree and power line damage.
