Flood watches, warnings in effect for several counties as wet weather continues

Rain coverage reached near 80%. on Tuesday over parts of Central Florida. Moisture is increasing along a front positioned over the deep South and Florida is front and center for some wet weather action. 

Heavy rain is in the cards, especially for areas northwest of the I-4 corridor. The rain will tend to push across the area in "waves" so expect a few lulls, pouring at other times.
