Flooding and rough surf will threaten residents and vacationers across parts of Florida through Saturday.
Northeastern Florida is the area across Florida at greatest risk of flooding through Saturday due to rounds of showers and thunderstorms.
The wet weather is due to a pair of slow-moving area of low pressures, one of which recently brought the historic snow to the Plains and Upper Midwest.
Another zone at risk for flooding through Saturday lies from northern Alabama and Georgia to the mid-Mississippi Valley.
According to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Jeff Rafach, "The greatest threat of flooding [in Florida] will be along the I-10 corridor east of Tallahassee. The heaviest rain will fall on Friday as a slow-moving band of rain pushes northward; however, wet and unsettled conditions will persist into Saturday."
Low-lying areas and along creeks and streams will be most prone to flooding.
Heavy downpours may lead to travel delays, slowing traffic due to slick roadways and reducing visibility.
Rain and thunderstorms may also cause delays at this weekend's NASCAR race at Talladega Superspeedway, Ala.
Not only will this system bring flooding rains to the Southeast, but breezy conditions along the coast will result in a rough surf and rip currents. Rip currents and rough surfs will stretch from the southern beaches of South Carolina to central Florida.
